More anniversary cards with CPS #121

I really like sketch 121 that is highlighted on Day 13 of the CPS anniversary:
A little something about the card above:
The image was made using what I guess could be called "reverse silhouette" technique. As you can see from the image below (another stamp from the same set) the image stamps with a solid color, leaving the leaves as a silhouette. In the above card I reversed this by stamping it with embossing ink and then using CLEAR embossing powder. I then used my foam blender and blended thoroughly over the whole image (and going beyond the edges) with Pine Needles distress ink. So the green that you see around the edge and on the leaves is actually that blending's color.
The papers from Webster's Pages (Trendsetter, Ladies/Gents) is just SO beautiful for me I used them again. They are double-sided and so versatile.

Stamps used:
Whimsical Wishes (GinaK Designs): There are 3 of these round silhouette images (see previous post for the other one)
All Occasion Tags (GKD) for the sentiment

Veels Geluk dimensions

This card was made for a friend of my mother's.  "Veels Geluk" means congratulations in Afrikaans. The letters were die-cut ...
