Happy Birthday Virginia Lu

One of my blogging friends Virginia celebrates her birthday this weekend, I could not resist recycling some stamps that were on a card she sent me, to make her this card.

Recycled stamps card

I also used Storm 01-001 mix and match card onto which I stamped Puzzle Parts 30-114 which had been inked with Hasbanero and Toffee Versafine ink, I then carefully peeled off the stamps from Virginia's envelope and adhered them to the card.  Two hearts were then die cut from recycled packaging card and then inked with Toffee Crunch, Desert Sand, Rich Cocoa, Cantaloupe and Tangelo Memento inks one was then overstamped with Softer and Kinder 3144F and an SRM sticker added to the other.  To finish off the corners were rounded with a corner chomper and some hemp twine added!

I hope you have a lovely Birthday Virginia, hugs Cathy
