Happy Birthday...

Fussy Cut the Stazon Jet Black stamped bottle image on a plastic sheet and backed it on white cardstock, that I distress inked with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass, drew some flower stalks, then Glossy Accent-ed them together to get that "watery" look....

  Distressed inked all the edges with Vintage Photo...

       It took a little time to die-cut, punch and distress all of the flowers and leaves but I really love the finished card..

More punching and distressing..

 That little tag from Tim Holtz is perfect here..

and the Typewriter font of the Stamps is just "rite" for this Vintage Card...!!

I have to admit this was a time consuming card but the end result was amazing and so very worth it!!
I used LOTS of Punches, a new Alterations Die and I dug out some older K&Company Papers for this one.. as they really capture the Vintage look so well…
