Kraftin Kimmie's Birthday Card :-)

It was Kraftin Kimmie's birthday yesterday and it will be her 3rd Blogoversary on Friday too ,,, so to celebrate she is giving away some of her fantastic stamps !! :-) To enter the candy she is asking us to make a card using her card sketch as inspiration :-)



I used my Lola Davinci stamp ( fab name eh !! :-)) I coloured the image with copics and distressed the edges with black soot distress ink. The papers are Basic Grey and I also used Black and Red card for layering :-) I inked a happy Birthday cuttlebug folder with black ink and ran some red card through it for the background bit,,, :-) The houses stamp is a Magenta stamp that I have had for ages and never know what to do with it ,,, then this idea just popped up :-)
The sentiment was done on my comp and I inked and embossed the edges with red glitter EP ,, I allowed it to smudge ON PURPOSE !! :-) Flowers and ribbon just didn't see to look right on this so my only embellies are a row of black gems :-)



here's a close-up ;-)

I hope Kimmie likes it,,,, Happy Birthday Kimmie and Happy Blogoversary too :-)

Thanks for looking :) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you are interested in enetering you can see it at the top of my blog :-)
