Birthday on Kraft

This was a card I submitted for the Papercrafts Magazine Go-to Sketches call that didn't get picked up.  What I really like about this card is how well the ink shows up on kraft! I used Memento Pear Tart and Tangelo, and the kraft doesn't muddy the colors at all.  Another detail that's hard to see is that I ran the card base through with the canvas impression plate after I stamped to give it a little more texture.

Thanks for stopping by!

I've had a lot of trouble using this stamp set, and I have to say that this is one of the best cards I've seen made with it! You've inspired me to give it another try (thanks!)
