The stars were inked with versamark then embossed with silver and sparkly black powder. I inked in the background with some pale blues and greens, applying them with a sponge dauber.
The large letters were embossed in silver, then inked over with dark blue, then carefully cut out so that some of the blue background could still be seen. The birthday part was handwritten.
Am entering this into the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge: impress us

Have made this card for my Father-in-law's birthday later this month and am entering it into two challenges:
DYSU challenge 36 (Texture)
Anything Goes challenge 49 (Vintage / Shabby Chic).
The papers used were from my stash of magazine freebies, I cut out the shapes and distressed them.
The large letters are die cut using Tim Holtz vintage market alphabet and embossed with gold, the small sentiment is from a Woodware set.
The inspiration for this card came from the blog of a lady whose work I think is amazing - Jo Kill. (http://jo-kill.blogspot.com/)
