Stempelglede DT - Vintage Garden Birthday Card

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share my Mum's birthday card with you.  I've used several gorgeous stamps from Stempelglede to create it.
 I have used the Le Jardin de Beaute stamp from the Vintage Garden stamp collection and painted it with distress inks.  I have used the no lines technique so that it looks like I have painted the whole thing myself.  I have painted the whole image mat background as I wanted a soft, muted sage green behind the image.
 I have then used the Carte Postale stamp, also from the Vintage Garden set, and the Postmark stamp from the Follow Your Heart stamp set.  I have also used a scroll stamp from the Vintage Garden set around the edges of the image mat along with the grunge splatter stamp from the Grunge Collection.
 I have made the butterflies by using the Butterfly stamp from the Vintage Baby stamp set.  I have stamped them onto coffee filter paper and painted them with several brown shades of distress ink.  I wanted them to look like the Woodland Brown butterfly that is common to see where I live.
 All of the flowers and berries are from The Ribbon Girl.  I kept the berries attached to their wire stems and twisted them to create a frame for the image.
 The cheesecloth peeping out from behind the image mat is also from The Ribbon Girl.
 I also used one of the butterflies from the Vintage Baby stamp set to create a smaller butterfly.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
