Birthday Wishes

Good morning peeps and welcome to the weekend!
This week at Fantasy Stampers we are starting a new challenge. We would like to see your stamped projects on the theme of -


A little early I thought for this subject but as I walked the dog yesterday there were quite a few leaves turning in the hedgerow.
Here is my card for your inspiration.

The background is the stamped element here. I took an oak leaf stamp from the Creative Expressions Autumn Foliage set and used Dried Marigold to stamp all over a piece of orange card. I then cut out some leaf shapes using my NEBUS set of  dies by MFT I bought ages ago, from a piece of black card. This top panel was then popped up on pads over the stamped base and the bottom 1/3 was wrapped with twine with a couple of die cut leaves from the stamped scrap and a white embossed LOTV greeting tag added.

OK, now it's your turn. Just remember any style is fine but you must use a traditional stamp in your project.  Pop over to the Fantasy Stampers page for more inspiration from the rest of the team.

I'm joining in over at -
