Finally - Happy Birthday Dear Friend...

Sometimes I love Royal Mail and USPS and sometimes I don't. These last few days have been a time that I don't... they let me down and I'm not a happy bunny! Luckily, however, the card finally got to its destination and was very well received.

The inspiration was a thread on SCS about "Martha" cards and this. Well, somehow that translated into what I made for my friend for her birthday - she has a downright addiction to the "rubbah" and we are always teasing her about it. When she decided to go unmounted, I remember her saying about actually physically aching because of how much there was to do! She also profides alot of training in her line of work so quite a bit of talking to groups etc.

Here's the card and I hope you like:

Cardstock: Georgia Pacific; Hobby Lobby
Ink: Big Juicy; Archival Jet Black
Stamps: Viva Las Vegastamps; My Sentiments Exactly multi alphabet.
Brad: Making Memories
Prismacolor Pencils
Oderless Minerals Spirits

I used the Big Juicy inkpad on the background audience stamp from VLV. I also did a direct to cardstock technique for the envelope back and inside the card with the same ink pad. The Emma Peel stamp was stamped in Archival Jet Black and clear embossed and colored in with Prismacolor pencils and cut out. Sentiment was printed on the computer and says "Eilis captured the full attention of her male audience with the mere mention of her rubber fetish"
