Pocketful of Birthday Wishes

When I saw Retro Sketches #6 sketch, I knew immediately that I wanted to use PTI's Back Pocket Basics stamp set.  I bought it a while ago but hadn't inked it up yet.  A very cute stamp set and a really awesome sketch!

The pocket drove me a little crazy.  I wanted to heat emboss the stitching but I kept smearing the white ink when I pulled the paper off the stamp.  After ruining five pockets, I finally used a tweezers.  Duh! Should've done that the first time.   The embossing turned out great and it looks almost like real stitching.  I really like how the card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
