A Rose Is A Rose

Having recently bought an Eyelet Border Punch, I was eager to christen it and put it to good use on the below birthday card. After much online surfing, I was inspired by a card I saw and decided to use my "A Rose Is A Rose" stamp set to create a birthday card for my collection with a sentiment stamp from "Birthday Best".

Hope you like:

Stamps: A Rose Is A Rose, Birthday Best (sentiment).
Cardstock: Old Olive, So Saffron and Whisper White.
Ink Pad:
So Saffron, Barely Banana, Old Olive, Certainly Celery and Versamark Stamp Pad.

Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon - Old Olive, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Dimensionals.
Card Size: A6.

Bye for now,

  4. Hi Alex. Sorry I've been absent for so long. Hope you're well. It's so long since I've had this stamp set out and you've made me realise I'm missing it. Too many christmas cards to do but I'll have to have a change now. This one is lovely as always.
