I was inspired by the Poppy Sketch #9...the sketch and fabulous colors were a perfect combination to show off The Twinery and Serendipity Stamps goodies!  The Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog has a Twine challenge up and running, too!

I used
  The Twinery 
Serendipity Stamps 

A gorgeous combination, don't you think?

I die cut the Serendipity Stamps Owl Die with some gold glitter paper...really makes the Gold Shimmer & Natural Twine pop!
The Serendipity Stamps And Wisdom Comes sentiment was stamped in a dark purple to bring out the background purple pattern paper.  Love the sophisticated look of this birthday card!

Now, you're off to the next stop of The Twinery & Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop...Julie Warner!  Don't forget to leave some love along the way for a chance to win!  Enjoy the hop!
