One of my husband’s relatives is mourning the passing of her thirties – how I wish that was my next big birthday!!! I felt I had to incorporate some black into her 40th birthday card to reflect this. The embellished paper by Cart-US has been in my stash for a very long time & has elements of black in it so I knew it would be perfect. I’ve based the card on the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
The greeting, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on parchment paper, is by Clearly Besotted and the diecut numbers are by Die’Sire. I used gems from my stash to hide the spots of glue under the parchment to hold it in place.
