Fall Birthday Wishes....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Theresa here, from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!

I thought I would show you a lovely
Fall Birthday Card I made for a friend of
mine - I was thinking of her and thought she might 
enjoy receiving this in the mail -

Since her birthday is during the month of September,
Fall Colors Screamed to me along with a little bit of Gold!

So I pulled out the Lovely Bird Cages (74834-K)  Stamp set
I heat embossed it in gold on a piece of Vellum - Then I
decided I wanted the Bird Cages to be my focal point -- 

so then I pulled out a piece of Water color paper and some
Distress Oxides (Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint,
Fossilized Amber, Antique Linen) - After distressing
my watercolor paper I sprayed some water and lifted off 
some of the drops with a towel - 
Then I had to add my favorite Sparkle Shimmer Spray - 
and let it all dry -
Once the water color paper was dried I added a piece 
of Fun Foam to the backing just for some dimension
and added it to a Dark Brown Card base - 
I attached the vellum image on top of the water color paper,
using some tiny pieces of Strong Super tape -
They're hiding behind the tiny birds & the cage strips...
You can't even tell I added them! So Awesome! 

Of course I wanted to add a Sentiment - 
So, I used the Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink
& the Elegant "Happy Birthday" sentiment from 
the Floral & Sayings (10549-X) Stamp Set.
It fit perfectly on the Stitched Banner Die - 

I was going to add some embellishments...
But I really like the simple elegance with
the gold embossing and Fall colors as the background -
