Poppies Birthday Wishes

As I have said many times, I am always in need of birthday cards so when I get an idea I go with it. I had coloured this flower image with markers and water and I wanted a black and white stripe paper for my background, but I did not have any. As I was going through my embossing folders I saw the houndstooth folder and thought why not make a background paper in black and white with it. Simply, I embossed my cardstock and ran my black ink pad over the raised area. I quite like the look so I went with it. I attached my floral panel to fun foam before attaching the panel to the card. I was so focused on my houndstooth I forgot about my sentiment - alas Misti to the rescue. I placed my card inside my Misti and inked up my stamp, and as the cardstock was on fun foam, it took several goes to achieve a good look. Thanks for visiting today .... I will see you next time.
