Hello everyone, it's been awhile!  I've made a birthday card here using one of the new Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous sets.

This stamp set is the Inventor #3(CMS342) from the Inventor series.  This image was stamped on Ranger's Tim Holtz Watercolour Cardstock.  It was lightly tinted with Distress Oxide inks and a water brush.

My black frame was created with Sizzix's Tim Holtz Stacked Label Thinlits Set (662695) which is available the end of April.  The flowers were made with Sizzix's Tim Holtz Funky Florals #3(662702) also available at the end of April.

The frame was created with three die-cuts (the negative part) of the Stacked Label cut from thin chipboard.  These were glued together to create a thicker frame.  I applied Black Gesso, then dry brushed a couple of lighter colours f paint.  Next I  drew a gold, then black line close to the inner edge with markers.  I applied lightly, Black Distress paint, then dry brushed my two other colours to fade the lines, giving my frame an antique look.  The flowers were die-cut with a floral foam sheet.  The tag was created with Tim Holtz Metallic Sticker (TH93335) and Tiny Text Remnant Rubs(TH93695).  Those little button flowers centers were some old button brads I had in my stash.

Here's the inside of my card.  The papers are from Tim Holtz and Blue Fern Studios.

Here's another look at my card. Thanks so much for stopping by!
