How Old Do You Feel?

Sometimes I feel ANCIENT!!! With that thought I decided that as it is my birthday this week the ideal choice for the new Eclectic Ellapu Pink challenge had to be:
Oldies Birthday
I would like to see your celebration of an oldies birthday! It doesn't have to be a card it can be any project that fits the theme!

For my card I used the wonderful image from Squigglefly 'the Old Sot'. I fell in love with this image the first time I saw it!

Now don't you think she looks so happy! The sentiment came with the image and is finished off inside the card:

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir markers for her hair, I used some paper from Paper Cellar for  the background and inside. I heat embossed the Happy Birthday with some chocolate embossing powder. The sentiment was printed onto white card then coloured and inked to age it - its as simple as that!

I hope you have enjoyed my card today and you will come over to Eclectic Ellapu amd join us in this celebration of an old f--ts Birthday!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
