Birthday card for Papertrey Ink Blog hop

Hello everyone, and a very warm welcome to Beanie and Little Dotty Bird who are new followers this week.

We are still in the midst of decorating but after missing the last Papertrey Ink Bloghop, I just had to play along this time so I made a quick card so I could join in.

This time we were asked to make a card that is tilted in some way and this is what I came up with


I scored lines of various thicknesses on my scoreboard at a tilted angle, and then inked them to make them more prominent. I really like to extend sentiments and I think I have a personal record here of using 4 different ones on 4 pieces card. I used tag dies and the photo finishers die along with stamps from a few sets that I will list if anyone wants to know more. But for now a paintbrush is shouting my name and I'll have to look in later.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy looking at all the inspiration on offer today.
