Wine and Age

     The sentiment on this card says it all and now I have one more birthday card in my stash.  I can't say who'll get this one because some people in my circle of friends and family read my blog and I certainly don't want to give it away.  :-D

The image, sentiment, and sketch are by From the Heart Stamps.
There's a twist with this sketch -"Crop the Digi" - which I did.


     I used my ProMarkers to color the inside circle of the image, leaving the outer circle in black and white.  I used two of my Die-Namics stitched circle dies to cut the image.  The sentiment is cut with with a square die from my Spellbinders collection.  The papers were scraps in my stash and the sheer ribbon I used was also a scrap.  I love the color and texture of it so much, I simply couldn't throw it out so found a way to use it.  :-D

I love that sentiment! So cute. And, as always, your card is lovely.

Thank you Connie! You are always so sweet to leave me a comment when you see me come back lol. I so appreciate that about you. You are a great friend, even though we have never met. And I'm lousy at it. I get wrapped up in my "real life" and forget my cyber friends. You are a great example.
