Birthday Wishes with Grapes

My mom needed a birthday card for a friend of hers who really like the wine and grapes theme. So I thought the retired hostess set called Provencal would be perfect!

This is what I came up with! I started with the main image and stamped it onto whisper white card stock with Basic Black classic ink. I colored in the image with watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I frayed the edges with the cutter kit. I layered that on to a piece of basic black cs using dimensionals. Then I ran a some rich razzleberry cs through my new Big Shot (Thanks Gaylyn!!! :o) with the Cuttlebug embossing folder called Texture. I placed this all on to whisper white card stock. I stamped the saying from Short & Sweet using the rich razzleberry marker. I also rounded the corners with the corner rounder punch.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
