So my friend Pam over at PAO issued a challenge using a piece of Victorian Scrap.
I cut the piece apart, pulled out my new Distress Stains and went to work.
I used Spun Sugar, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Stains for the background, ran it through my Cuttlebug and rubbed Chestnut Roan Chalk ink over the embossed area and around the edges.
Stamped Happy Birthday (Club Scrap) onto a piece of scrap Basic Grey paper, tore the edges and adhered both bird image and saying.
Then stamped a few musical notes (CLear Art Stamps) for a bit more background and finished it up with a yellow fiber on the side.
Now I have my MIL's birthday card
