A Hobbyart Birthday Scene!

Good Morning!
I am back today with another card using some Hobbyart Stamps! I have used exactly the same sets as what I used on Monday's card but I wanted to create something completely different. I have actually created a scene on the front of the card which is actually something I don't do that often! I love the classic feel it has given this card though. I didn't add any further embellishments as I wanted the whole focus to be on the design. If you missed it you can find Monday's Card HERE

Incase you are wondering which is the best place to start when creating a scene I have taken two photo's of when I started so you can see for yourselves. To begin with I used the grass stamp from the 'Anne's Collection - Just For You' set and used the second and third generation stamping techniques. This is simply re stamping the same image a second and third time after inking it up just once. 
I repeated this technique with the bluebell stamp.

Next I decided it was best that I stamped the Sentiment I wanted to use so I could position the rest of my scenery stamps in the best place.

After Stamping the sentiment I added a bee stamp to the left and again using the second generation technique I stamped the large Dragonfly twice and the smaller Dragonfly once.
Once I had heat set the design I mounted the card onto some black cardstock which I think just helps the design 'pop' which I then mounted onto a card blank.
