Napkin card

Yes you read that right this is a napkin background that has been applied to a piece of cardstock with Mod Podge.  One of my cardmaking groups was challenging each other to make napkin cards, I didn't know there were so many wonderful napkins out there.  This napkin is left over from a project I did years ago when I took a simple white trash can that I wanted for my bathroom and I added the cut outs of the roses to the can to go with my rose theme in my bathroom.  That is now in my craft room.

Napkin & Mod Podge
Paper trey ink-- One Liners, Happy Die set
Technique Tuesday -- Happy Birthday sentiment stamp (Birthday)

I won the happy set of dies from Susan's blog, I had to make a card using one of them right away. I cut the die 3 times out of kraft card stock then glued them all together. Before I added the top one I gave it some deeper brown color using Walnut Stain Distress ink. The birthday was stamped onto cardstock and the happy die was laid on top of it. If you haven't had a chance to see Susan's blog head over and check out her wonderful talent!

Baby Evelyn update: She is up to 21 ml an hour as of yesterday, no update yet this early in the morning. Still going strong :)

Hope your week is off to a good start, sounds like some of us will be having a cool down in temps this week, that will be a nice relief, we still have another 90 degree day today but starting tomorrow we should be seeing the 80's again!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

This is beautiful card! What a lovely rose! The temps are a tad better here, still very hot (NH) but perhaps not quite as humid which makes the heat more tolerable.

So glad to hear little Evelyn is still doing well.
The rose card is lovely, and I think that die will be very useful.
There are so many pretty paper napkins out there, I should think it will a technique you'll want to try again!
Have a wonderful day, dear Connie!
