Celebrate Autumn Birthday

Sharing my Celebrate Autumn Birthday card.
Just recently I have got beautiful leaves background stamp from latest Simon release and couldn’t wait to use it. This time I decided to try Oil Pastels, saw this idea on Kristina’s video here. I couldn’t find any water soluble oil pastels around Toronto, that’s why just bought Straddler oil pastels from Staples, which can be used with water. And totally love how it turned out on the background!!!
For the focal point I chose amazing gift die cut. Then was a sentiment… I was going to use a die -cut sentiment in red colour, as outline of a gift. It didn’t work. Had to add more white space to pop up sentiment. I die-cut label and stamped Celebrate with red ink.
