Engraved Greetings Birthday

Happy Friday! Today's card uses one of new favorite sets, Engraved Greetings (p. 182, IBC). You might have missed it, since it's actually back in the accessories section. When I saw this set, I knew it was one that I would have to add to my first order from the new catalog. I love the letter press quality of the font, and it looks great on masculine cards. This is the card I provided as a make-n-take at our mini-convention earlier this week. The layout for this card was inspired by a project I saw on Dawn Olchefske's blog.

Did you see that little bit o' sparkle? I added a couple of Basic Rhinestones to the main image, just to dress is all up a teensy bit.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!
