Birthday gifts

Another quick card today because, once again, I was too busy for anything else. For this card I used the Year After Year Set, which is scheduled to retire on August 10. I really like this set because it's a line set, which means you can color it if you want to, but the lines are bold enough that you can let the images stand on their own, as I chose to do on this card. I used the masking technique to create the illusion of perspective. It would have worked a little bit better had I stamped the orange gift a bit lower, but even as it is it looks OK. Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Year after Year, A little Birthday Cheer
Inks: green galore, brilliant blue, only orange, tempting turquoise, real red
Card stock: green galore, only orange, tempting turquoise, whisper white
Accessories: designer label punch, 1/16" handheld circle punch, bold brights brad assortment.
