Happy birthday my Friend....

Hi , welcome to my blog. The current challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to use chipboard from your stash. This is the perfect challenge for me - I have tons of chipboard leftover from projects ... at least three years or more!! I decided to use a chipboard frame for my card.... take a look:

I  covered the frame and small flower in Prima  blue metallic chalk and then it with Perfect Pearls Mist in  Blue Raspberry. When it was dry I used a stencil ( only for the frame)from The Crafters Workshop ( Sketch Grid) and applied a layer of crackle paste and misted it again with the blue mist.  The metallic sheen doesn't really show that well in the photo but it's quite nice in person! I also misted the chipboard owl in Bronze perfect Pearls mist ... again , I wish you could see how glimmer it is!!!My dp is from Lost and Found 3 collection from My Mind's Eye. The paper has glitter , so it really complements all accent pieces well. Finally, I dug around my stash and found some old rub-on sentiments from Stampin' Up! . Lots of old stuff got used here!!!
That's my card for this week's challenge... hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by... have a wonderful creative day!
