Mark’s Finest Papers

This card was made using the new “Big Cats” set from Mark’s Finest Papers.
http://www.marksfinestpapers.com/servlet/StoreFront
I inked this stamp with different shades of brown markers and stamped on white cs.
I did not color as I thought the mixed inking showed plenty of shades and hues.
I used a plain and scalloped circles Nesties for the matting.
The bg dp is from Basic Grey. There is a knoted grossgrain ribbon tied in a simple knot and a birthday sentiment.
