Stitched Cake

I have a simple little birthday card to share today...featuring an older Hero Arts stamp called 'Stitched Cake', that I picked up recently in a charity shop. I coloured it using watercolour pencils, then found a (sort of) matching snippet of paper (from the My Mind's Eye 'Happy Day' pad) to go with it. I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Handwritten Borders' set by Simon Says Stamp.
