Hayley's Birthday/Stampman Challenge

I have made this card this weekend quite quickly because it is my beautician, Hayley's birthday tomorrow and I have been so busy at work I didn't realise it had got to that time already. We work 21 days in advance at work which helps matters even less! I also noticed that my design fitted the current theme of Texture at The Stampman so hope they like it too.

The papers are Birdsong & I have embossed using the new tri boss folder by Papermania Heart Attack. It looks much better in real life than the picture depicts giving subtle texture to a gorgeous piece of paper. The image is by PaperArtsy. Label is die cut using new Die-licious labels dies from Papermania. To give a touch more texture I punched black card with Xcut Flower Doily. I am slightly obsessed with texture at the moment & use embossing folders where ever I can!!! You might have noticed looking at all the designs I made this year so far!!! The image is cut with the Nestabilities Lacey circle die. Edges of paper inked with Victorian Velvet Distress ink.

Hi Paula
I just love your card. The black & white stamp looks is a perfect mix to the pattern paper. I do understand your obsessing with texture. Go to my blog and se what I made with a lot of texture ;O)
