These days, I only seem to make a card when I need one - LOL!! That may change now though since summer is just about over and my days will be my own again.
As usual, I can't remember which Basic Grey collection this is from! (Ha!) Hmmm....either I'm having memory issues or just have too much Basic Grey!! (I think it's a combination of both!) I used my big scalloped circle nestabilities and intended to layer my image on that. When I tried it, it just didn't give it the 'pop' that I wanted.....when I looked at the remnant of my die cutting, I decided to give that a try....and I liked it! Looking at the finished product, I wish I'd done a little more stitching, but I'm pretty happy with it. :)
I used the big scalloped piece (originally cut out to go behind the image) on the inside of the card as the background for the "Happy Birthday" sentiment.
