Vintage Birthday

It is my aunt's birthday on Monday and over at the Allsorts Challenge the theme is vintage and this appeals as I've just got hold of the Paper Cellar Victorian Classic pad. I love the Allsorts challenges but haven't entered for a while so I am happy to be doing so now.

I have had a go at some new techniques for this beginner in this card but on the whole I like it. I have taken one of my photos of a flower head (a fav subject of mine) and edited it with PSE and printed it on Parchment Card and clear embossed over it.

I've layered it on Funky Fairy Distressed paper from Vol 3 and the Victorian Classic paper and added string raffia from Arty Miss.

I stamped happy birthday on gold vellum layered the card up and stamped with a Personal Impressions stamp in Whispers Archival Straw Matt and a FF Bespoke ink pad and clear embossed at points. I also used an XCut ruler to tear the paper.

Thanks for the inspiration DT over at Allsorts and thanks for taking the time to look. Happy Crafting. XXX
