Birthday card

Hello
I really enjoyed making this card for a friend. It's clean simple compared to all the inkyness I've been engaged in lately. The stamp is one of my all time faves from paper bag studios. I stamped SU script using a well used black stazon (I didn't want it too dark ) on to a piece of pretty card I found in my stash. I stamped the image with Ranger's black soot, which is a lovely true black. I hand stitched the edge and stuck down some lace, mounted it on black and white paper. I am quite pleased at the result which is unusual for me to say the least!
Thanks for visiting
hugs Joy xx
