Happy Birthday Allsorts and Easel card for Rosie D's

Here is my card for this weeks Allsorts challenge where the theme is Happy Birthday. I decided to go for a sepia effect/ shades of brown easel card. The poppy image (penny black) is stamped with vintage sepia versafine and coloured with tea dye and antique linen distress inks before spraying with gold creative colour sprays (Crafty notions). The stamp on the beige card is also penny black and stamped in versafine vintage sepia. For the stopper panel I used the Happy Birthday sentiment (Elusive Images) and the ornamental Grasses (Craftwork Cards).

As an easel card I am also entering it into this week's Rosie D's challenge where the theme is Easel cards. Thanks for looking!
