A Pretty Little Fall Birthday Card #177

Oh I just love the card I made for the Unscripted Sketches challenge.  Here's the sketch.

Here's the card.

The background paper is from Prima. It's a 6x6 pack called "Songbird Collection." The papers are so soft and beautiful.

I wanted the birds to show so I stamped the image from Memory Box onto vellum. I chalked the wreath in oranges with Pebbles Chalks and then stamped the little leaves with Versacolor Dew Drop Chalk inks in 3 colors. The birthday sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps.

I've also uploaded this card into the gallery for the class I'm taking called Kick Start. I have never used vellum to stamp an image, I've always stamped a sentiment printed off the computer. I'm going to start doing images more, I love the effect.

I've got lots of cards to make so I'll see you back here shortly!

Hope you're feeling creative today and have some time to act on it!



  1. Wow! This card is sooooooo beautiful! The vellum wreath is exquisite! These are such pretty warm fall colors! Thank you so much for choosing our Unscripted sketch to showcase this wonderful project!

  2. This is really pretty! I would love to know how you use your Pebbles chalks without getting them all over the place. I've tried over and over again with burnishing and everything, but they get on my fingers when I pick up the card. I don't like the smeary mess so I'm just about ready to give them away!

    Any tips you can share?

  3. I absolutely love the effect of your stamping wreath/branches onto the vellum. Love your autumn colors.

  4. Such a pretty card! Thanks for playing at US this week!
