I needed a card to send to a dear friend in France - we were good friends many years ago and they helped us many times with things we were trying to do. Sadly the couple moved to France and he has many health issues so has tried to avoid much close contact with people. It is his Birthday on Saturday and I hope he doesn't spend it in hospital.
I didn't feel I could make a bright, bright Birthday card so this is what I came up with.
I used some papers from Basic Grey (Granola pad) which I have had for ages and some grommets which I bought on one of my USA trips without realising I really needed a proper way to insert them - however where there is a will there is a way - pressed down to make hole marks, pierced them with a blade, pushed the grommet through and then took a hammer to the back - job done! The image from Marks Finest Papers is stamped and coloured straight on the DP with Memento Black and Copics. The sentiment is stamped in brown.
I hope you are having a good week and if it is your Birthday - enjoy!
The stamp set used is called Silly Shells
