What a veritable feast of birthday treats!  And here is my card.  I used a Flonzcraft stamp called Vintage Fashion Girls - Fifties 03. 

I have two 3's on my card - my lovely ladies and three layers.  My papers are from Prima and I wasn't sure when I first got them but the colours really work well together and they aren't too over the top.  I stamped my image onto Super Smooth Decoupage paper and then stamped again onto each of the different patterned papers.  I cut them out with scissors and paper pieced the dresses and glove.  My image was cut out with Spellbinders Eyelet Squares which I inked with Tim Holtz Distres Ink in Worn Lipstick, placing at a jaunty angle with foam pads for interest.  I used the smallest Eyelet Squares die for my sentiment which is from that set that I've had forever.  What a brilliant buy that one turned out to be!  I also used the DI to ink my sentiment.  My card blank is from Hobbycraft.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafts and Me #111 - Circles
A Gem of a Challenge #60 - Paper Piecing

I really hope you can join us for our birthday celebrations.  With those wonderful prizes on offer, you'd be mad to miss it!

Happy crafting,
