Stamp a Faire: 1940's

This afternoon we were able to visit the 1940's courtesy of the talented Betsy Veldman, who showed a wonderful "tablecloth" motif stamp set used with repetition pattern stamping.  Here is the link:

This entry reminded me of the County Fair Paper Trey set of stamps and dies I purchased earlier this month.  Actually, Betsy was the designer of that set, and I think she presented a card on her website similar to what I am doing here.  Instead of using a stamp as the defining large element, I used the quilt die from the set.  Here is my card:

You will have to disregard all my "stamping outside the lines".  I am not quite used to this set but I really enjoyed playing with it this afternoon.  I love sewing and quilts all things homemade and crafty.  I think this will make an excellent birthday card if the inside sentiment says "Birthday Ever!"  the black numbers on the "ribbon" are stamped with an old Amuse Art Stamp clear set of numbers I had.  I like that the set came with a -st, -nd, etc.  If I make this card again (and I will), I will make the number white rather than black.  Thank you, Betsy, for a fabulous idea and a fabulous stamp set.  I love my County Fair set!
