Atlantic Hearts 220 - Tagged Birthday Wishes

The sketch at Atlantic Hearts this week has so many possibilities but I chose to stick pretty close to the original sketch. It fit what I had in mind. 

A recent purchase of an Altenew stamp set called Bamboo Roses was perfect for this card - there are several floral clusters and I used a lot of them to create the background behind the tag - stamping with Sea Glass ink on Sea Glass cardstock. I chose two of them for the oval in the centre and had to mask one of the leaves from one stamp to get both stamps to fit. A second Altenew stamp called Tulip was used for the sentiment. 
I have held onto buttons for many years - and the one used here is from CTMH from WAY BACK - and it actually matched the Sea Glass paper perfectly! What is old is new again... 
The twine used to secure the button to the ribbon is our white twine - I just coloured it using a ShinHan marker. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above. You have until Sunday evening to link up your project.
