Quickie birthday card today...

I was going through my card stash the other day and couldn't believe how few birthday cards I've finished! Today's quickie can easily be switched to any occasion with a simple sentiment swap... which means you could make up a stack of these babies ahead of time and just add the greeting later. A true card quickie :)

Stamps: Aged Ornaments, Label Lingo (Hostess Level D)

Paper:
Kraft, Dark Brown, Scarlet, & Ivory UltraSmooth cardstocks, kraft packing paper

Ink:
Burnt Umber Palette

Other:
Antique Copper Eyelets, Scor-Pal, EK Success border punch (on inside), pop dots

I turned the label frame vertically so that more of the Scarlet would show for that extra pop. I scored lines on either side of the sponged kraft packing paper for added detail. I also added a Scarlet border strip on the inside for just a little sumpin' sumpin'.

Be sure to go to my Haunted Blog Monday morning for another fun card & a Macabre Monday challenge!!

What do you think?
