Happy Birthday card, Just Add Ink #374

Won't be long now until the new Holiday catalog will be live!  I know you will love it, have you seen all the sneak peeks?   But for today I have a set from the annual catalog. It's a host set called Background Bits and I fell in love with it my first order. But I really haven't used it much.

This week the JAI team is doing an inspiration photo:  Stop on over and check it out.

What I took away was a lot of browns and white.  So, I used Kraft paper and StazOn white ink.  SU has white ink as well, however, it's a pigment ink, and works well for embossing, and can be used by itself if you want a more muted white, but I wanted  a darker white, but not embossed necessarily. Although  that would work just fine for this.

The sentiment shape is a new punch and and sentiment is in the matching stamp set.  To get the white shape to match I cut 2 out of white and layered them under my kraft one.  I piece of burlap ribbon finished it off.
