A Lancaster Birthday

Happy Monday and welcome to another week of Friends of SpeedyTV challenges brought to you by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company.  This week our challenge is to make a birthday card using our Mark's Finest Papers stamps.  For my card, I chose to use a soon to be released set called A Trip To Lancaster.  This set is just perfect for birthday cards for any gender, vintage type get well cards, or anything in general.

I started out by stamping my images in memento tuxedo black onto Mark's Finest Papers Snow Covered Porch White card stock and then colored everything with koh-i-noor pencils and a blender marker.  Once my coloring was finished, I started layering using Mark's Finest Papers Limeade card stock and Stampin Up! old olive card stock with Basic Gray Boxer designer paper.  For the final touches, I added some ribbon, primas, and brads before adding my layered images to the card.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
