Bus, Bunting, Birthday


Here I used an old Penny Black stamp - I stamped it on gloss cardstock and coloured it with markers, which is why it has a slightly smudgy look. The background and bunting are from  printed from Papermania  Portobello Road CD.  For the sentiment, I combined a frame from Portobello Road and a sentiment from Papermania Happy Birthday CD.

Actually, on screen this card has a slightly more pinky look to the reds than in-real-life . My partner owns a bus like this one (minus the animals!), so I made this card with men in mind.

I'd like to enter:
CD Sunday  something beginning with b
Penny Black Saturday masculine
Male Room transport
Fussy and Fancy  birthday
