My Friend Birthday

While I was digging through my stash of stamped images I ran across this one and thought I would put a card together.  I need to use up some of these little stashes of "stuff" in my workroom.  So I set aside what I was originally going to do and headed to the cupboard of card stock.

I used Cajun Craze card stock for the base of the card since the image was stamped in that color.  I put a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Basic Black card stock on top of the base.  Then I added a piece of Cajun Craze polka dot decorative paper that was cut 4" x 5-1/4".  

The image was cut 3-3/4" x 3-1/4" and the Basic Black behind it is cut 3-7/8" x 3-3/8".  

I used the round scallop punch and punched out a Basic Black piece.  Then I used the 1-3/4" circle punch and used Cajun Craze for that layer.  The words were printed on the computer and then punched out with the 1-1/4" circle punch.  The words and image were stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and both were sponged with Cajun Craze ink.  

I had used a high density sponge so the sponging had a smoother and softer look.  High density sponges are the same as the makeup remover sponges you get in the beauty department of the stores.  

What was fun about this card tonight was that I didn't stamp a thing (it was done a while ago) and I didn't have any stamps to clean up!!!  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
