HAPPY BIRTHDAY MITRA!!

Mitra Friant is the owner of Impression Obsession stamps, and today is her birthday. I'm so very lucky to be able to design for this generous lady with her beautiful line of stamps. I wanted to create something elegant for her, and this is the result. I stamped my favourite Impression Obsession swirl background stamp on vellum, gold embossed it, then set it behind a Nesties frame. I stamped this Impression Obsession sentiment on a transparency, black embossed it, then put the card together with some pearls, a paper flower, and some of my precious hoarded British Columbia coral beads. ;)

Please do visit the blogs of alll the other Impression Obsession designers to see their treasures for "our boss." You'll find direct links on my sidebar.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MITRA!!

WOW! I hopped over from Julie K's and am I ever impressed with your stuff! That hand sewn sympathy card is stunning, as is the graduate and Mitra's birthday card. Will stop back by again as I love the Quietfire stamps, too. Thanks for sharing.
