Belated Birthday

Karola Witczak
There's a new designer, Karola Witczak, over at CASE Study and she's starting us off with this beautiful card as this week's inspiration piece. The details on this card are simply stunning, not something I would even attempt to CASE. So for Challenge #76, I offer you my simplified version. It's a belated birthday card...yes, I admit it, (very) rarely I do forget... ;-)

I'm using a red card base with 2 layers: cream and black. The patterned papers are form Cosmo Cricket's "Togetherness" pack.
I tore paper the paper squares, scrunched it and inked the edges with TH's Rusty Hinge distress ink. I didn't stick the pieces down completely, instead used a glue dot in the middle of each.
The sentiment is from Personal Impressions "Double Sayings"  stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and I inked the edges with a touch of TH'S Antique Linen.  I probably should have curved the stamp to follow the shape of the banner. The banner is from Spellbinder's Ribbon Banner set. I adhered it using several layers of foam tape.
Here's the inside: scallop trim with some of the background paper.

 Thanks for stopping by. See you at the my next post.
