Birthday Card

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Mine was good because I got to spend some time crafting.  I spent some time working on a swap project and I made a birthday card for a friend's birthday.  Today I'd like to share the card.

My card is a 5x7 card.  The card base is GP white cardstock, then a black layer - I can't remember the name of the manufacturer of the black cardstock, but I get it at Walmart where I get the white cardstock. 

My next two layers are from the fabulous Kaisercraft In the Attic collection.  This collection has all kinds of fun elements.  I fell in love with this collection because it depicts a lot of things one might find in an attic.  One of the items that are featured in the collection are records.  There are so many people who never had a vinyl record, but growing up they were a huge part of my teen age years, so I had to have the collection.  While I'm saving the records and other elements for some scrapbook pages, this collection also has some lovely patterned paper.

I just adore the red paper from the collection.  It has little tiny tan hearts and lines running through it and I thought it coordinated beautifully with this gorgeous floral paper also from the collection. 

My sentiment stamp is from Close to My Heart and I stamped it with Momento Tuxedo black ink.  The flower is by Recollections and the black pearls are by Queen and Company. 

I'm really happy with the way this card came out and I hope my friend will like it too.
