How Old - Old Man....

Hello friends - it feels like a long time since I have shared a card with you - I have spent the lat fours days at a Scrap Girls Retreat and it was fabulous - a lot of fun and laughter - yes I did actually get some layouts created and will share them soon.

I have used a recycled image - how adorable is this old guy - all ready to party!  He has been cut out by hand and popped up onto an oval cut/embossed from the Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight Card Creator Nestabilities using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares. This has then been layered onto  blue cardstock embossed by the Spellbinders Grid Embossing Fold'er.  The splatters have been added using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko irRESISTibles in Electric Blue, Electric Yellow and Electric Orange - a great look for a party - don't you think!? The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz stamp set.  

This card is for the following challenges:
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes with Embossing
Creative Fingers Challenge - Anything Goes
Robyn`s Fetish - Square or Rectangle Cards
Artbymiran Challenge  Anything Goes
QKR Stampede – Add a Sentiment
