Seize The Birthday - No Topping


We've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday.  This time there's no topping, so you can join in with whatever style of birthday project you like.  (You may have spotted my deliberate mistake - no "happy birthday" anywhere in sight, but I assure you it is a birthday card!)


I picked up these key and keyhole brads at the Port Sunlight show on Saturday, along with the tag stamp.  I stamped the tag image onto kraft card and glammed the image up a bit with some pink lipstick and blue eyeshadow.  The blue lace panel is from my stash of completed Gelli Plate prints which I sponged with Walnut Stain around the edges.  I partially stamped some text on the card base with Espresso Truffle, then stamped a postmark with Antique Linen.

I added twine, ribbon and fibre to the tag, so I'm entering it into The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge, Ribbon, Twine and Fibre.


Don't forget, the Mixed Media Card Challenge is open for Vintage with the optional element of 'key'.
