GM31 - Happy Birthday Tim

Good Afternoon Peeps

Over on the Lovely Linda's blog this week's Challenge is to make a Birthday Card for the wonderful Tim Holtz in commemoration of his birthday yesterday.  Happy Birthday Tim!!

I wanted to make a monogram type of card but instead of black and white, I opted for browns - hope you like it Tim!

The stamped background is from my Darkroom Door stamp sets with my lovely Praha images.  Around the stamped piece I have stamped with Hero Arts and Penny Black stamps.   The lampost is made from the Sizzix die using MME paper and stamped with my favourite Stampers Anonomous flourish stamp and embossed with bronze powder.  The background piece to my sentiment is from the same MME paper.  I used one of the sentiments from the Darkroom Door stamps and cut both the sentiment and the background with my Spellbinders dies.  The whole piece is mounted on a piece of paper which was formerly the base of my spray box.  I just love using these pieces as they are beautiful colours. 

On the lampost I hung a Muse Token with U for Unique as that is what Tim is! 

I am afraid that I have Praha very much on my mind at the moment as Hubby and I are going to be visiting very soon!!  Yeay!!!  After the stresses and strains of the last few months of 2011 the thought of this trip has kept us going once we decided that we weren't going to cancel the trip!

You rock Tim and I hope your birthday was a very happy one!

Please do not forget to leave me a message and call by Linda's to see some of the other birthday cards which have been made for Tim.  And of course, don't forget to call by Tim's blog for some awesome ideas and updates!

What a lovely card! I think your background is gorgeous. I don't have any of those stamps but I am seriously considering getting some now.
