Happy Birthday to my Big Sister!

Hello Friends

It is my Big Sister's Birthday today - not a big birthday for her, nor is my sister particularly large, but being born 7 years before me, she will always be my "Big" Sister!

As you can see I have used my new Paperartsy stamp which I was lucky enough to win over at the Playground.  I absolutely love it!!  On the main part of the card I have used a plethora of Tim Holtz stamps, one an all time favourite and the others from a set I recently got my mitts on.

As is normal for me, I have used Tim Holtz Distress Inks including Gathered Twigs, Aged Mahogany, Crushed Olive and Red Barn.  I spritzed over it with gold glimmer mist, though it is not picked up in the photos.
I made a teeny tiny ticket from a Tim Holtz stamp and adhered it to a SU tag which was stamped.  A Snippet of lace and the piece of TH Cordinations was also from my Snippets boxes.  The cream cardstock is Vanilla by SU.

Thanks for calling by.


PS I would just like to say Hello to Irene - my latest follower!

your sister is going to love this card...I love the way you took an ordinary Stampin Up label stamp and turned it into something with a little more edge!

PS. My ticket arrived for Ally Pally on Thursday and I nearly ripped it up as I thought it was a discount voucher from a crafting store, oops!

So, what I need to know is:
how can you use a load of different images and make a background look utterly fantastic... and yet if I try it just looks pants? *lol*
I love the card - hope your sister had a day as amazing and wonderful as the card you made her!
Just popping over from Pixies Crafty Snippets :)
