Country Happy Birthday

Today's card was "cased" from Theresa Momber's awesome Autumn Windmill Tutorial. I substituted a few different products, but followed her tutorial fairly closely. I just love all the work she does with her inked backgrounds that I needed to give it a try. I had trouble creating the clouds, but overall am pleased with the result. Definitely need more sponge daubers.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Country Roads, Birthday Greetings - Gina K
Paper: Gina K
Ink: Memento, CTMH, Tim Holtz Distress Ink
