Lavinia Stamps "Dancing Till Dawn" Birthday Card

My friend is celebrating her birthday this week, as she is also a paper crafter, I thought it only right that her card be made of Lavinia Stamp products.

I used Distress Oxide Inks to create the land and skyscape using:  Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Salty Ocean for the sky.  I used Antique Linen, Twisted Citron, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint for the ground area.

I started by stamping the "Trees" to separate the sky from the land, stamping in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" shade of ink.

I then stamped the fir trees, using "Small Fairy Fir Tree" and "Small Fairy Fir Tree 2", stamped in two inks (Distress Oxide "Peeled Paint" and Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" ink).

I then stamped the "Dancing Till Dawn" figures, the "Fern Heads" and the Papertrey Ink sentiment from thier "Stylish Sentiments" set using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I added little daisies to the grass by dotting white and orange shades of Posca Pen.  I added a silver shimmer to various areas of the card by using a Signo Pen.
