Happy Birthday Card

This is my DT card for Addicted To Stamps.  The challenge theme is to use a stamped image and stamped sentiment.
I searched my stash of rubber stamps and decided to use this darling called Tweet Talk from Penny Black.  Isn't she sweet?
I tried something different with this card. instead of just attaching the heart doily to the card, I decided to cut it directly from my card base.  I ran it through my big shot with the edge of the die just slightly over the end of my cutting plate so that it remained attached to the card base. If you want to learn how to create a partial die cut border, there are several videos on Youtube that will show you the technique.
The gorgeous set of papers I used for this card are from Bo Bunny's Butterfly Kisses Collection.
