Super plain...birthday

This card didn't photograph well at all. The large Soft Sky paper has white paisley pattern all over it, and the birthday square is dry embossed and the outer rim is highlighted in Soft Sky using a blender pen and the inkpad. The black dots were done with a Stampin' Write journal marker and the eyelet template from SU! for alignment. It's super plain, I know, but I was going for a sort of monochromatic, clean line look. I hope you don't hate it!

Sets: NO STAMP SETS! lol
Colors: Black, Soft Sky, white
Other: Black & white grosgrain, birthday cuttlebug folder, soft sky designer paper
