August birthdays

It seems that I know a lot of people with birthdays in August, including my own! The Wizard of Oz is one of my favourite favourite films (since I was 3 years old apparently!) and for a little while now I've had a pad of the new Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz paper (8x8) burning a hole in my scrappy supplies!

As this card is for a friend I loved this image of the Scarecrow and Tinman together, and the gorgeous warm yellows in the main image and the background paper so I accented this with some Jillibean Soup 'Beanstalks' twine and some Prima Essentials 'Jack and Jill' flowers (believe it or not I didn't see the names of the designs until after I had put the card together!).

I added some Mustard Seed Distress Ink around the edges, a Dymo caption and some brads from my stash and felt this was a perfect summer birthday card :) happy birthday to all those celebrating in August! :)
