Another Vintagey B-day Card

I am continuing to show you, my faithful Blogger friends(!), the new Sweetstamps stamps I won recently. This card features 3 of the stamps! They are ATC size so I was able to combine all 3 on one slightly bigger card (bigger than A2...about 5x6). Love the vintage feel and the artsy designs! The series is called "Artsy Fartsy"....so many possibilities! These are: "Italian Handwriting" (left), "Love Birds Collage" (right), and "Crown Butterfly" (top).

 I added just a bit of color the the dk brown stamped images, and fussy-cut around the butterfly image to emphasize the lovely filigree edges. The base of the card is kraft, the background layer is a dark brown and the images are stamped on white...all from my stash. The flower is a torn, rolled rose made from a scrap of Lt blue print with added blue from a marker and distressed edges. The stamped leaves behind it are from the JustRite set "Cast All Your Cares"


The 2 kinds of die cut leaves behind the rose both from Sweetstamps.com too. They are called "Olive Branches" and "Elegant Leaves". And lastly, the tiny tag: the sentiment is from the "Wistful Wishes" set by Clear Dollar Stamps, and the dotted border is from StampingScrapping.com "Fancy Accents".
