A special Birthday card

I made this for a lovely lady whos just celebrated her 75th Birthday!

You cant quite see but the background is made up of a couple of techniques ..direct to paper striping with two colours and stamping and sponging over the top ..okay is that 3 techniques? Then I embossed it with my new EF ..Finial Press ..cant believe I havent got this before (well I thought I had but cant find it! ..or its it old age setting in hmm?)

More mustard scallop circle broke up the background and I could go nuts on my collage stamping! Have been wanting to have a play with this stamp set (Established Elegance)…some more.. Ive previously used it on scrapbooking LOs but I was determined to use it on a card.

Hope you like!
