With love on your birthday

Some time ago I bought some boxes of notecards from TK Maxx with the idea of cutting up the boxes and using parts of the cards and envies to upcycle. This is one of the cards I've made, adding some stamping using Penny Black's floral silhouette inked with memento rich cocoa and adding a Kanban sentiment.

I based the card on the sketch given for CAS colours & sketches 282:
