Smile! It's Your Birthday! ^_^

Hello there~

Happy Tuesday!

I am here to share a birthday card I made a few days ago for my lovely sister. I created this card by using my newest Lawn Fawn goodies and with the current Lawnscaping Challenge No. 104: Sketch in mind.
My sister loves coffee so this Lawn Fawn stamp set- Love You A Latte is just perfect!! Here is the card:
The tone on tone stamping look, I believe, is quite popular. But funnily enough I think this is actually the first time I used this technique. I created my own background paper by using VersaMark ink and randomly stamped on a piece of kraft card. I also embossed the images by using clear embossing powder. I am sure you can see the shine and raised images on the card. The camera picked it up quite well this time. I like the subtle look of the background and I am certain I will use this technique again!
The dangling heart on my main image was inspired by one of the papers from Lawn Fawn's Sweater Weather paper pack. Here is an image of that paper:
I stamped the different hearts, that come in the stamp set, and drew black lines to make them look as if they were dangling from the bow on top. Lots of glitters been added around the circle frame, hearts, spoon and at the bottom of the coffee cup. I also added Glossy Accents on the coffee to make it look 'liquidy'! (Is that even a proper word? Hee hee!) The dangling heart look continues inside the card. The sentiment I used here is from Avery Elle's Cake & Candles stamp set.
I am also linking this card to the following challenges:
