A hint of vintage birthday

So if you follow my blog you know I start the year with quite a few birthdays and events.  Doesn't everyone? And every year I lose my mojo in January.'s a plot I tell ya! So this year I decided to not stress so much if this was the most perfext unique card for my BIL and just create.

I pulled loads of stamp sets and decided to use a Tim Holtz set that hadn't seen ink... I love the look of Tim Holtz inspired work but it is that little bit beyond my realm of logical comfort. I over analyze.  An internal dialogue of "oh my that is beautiful" versus "why?" "This doesn't really fit in your decorating scheme", "Would you want to dust it? " etc...

Hopefully I came up with a happy medium.  Is there such a thing as CAS (clean & simple) Tim Holtz?

BTW I am so excited over the card base I used. I know talking card bases isn't sexy but this card stock is a great weight and a great price especially with a coupon!

Card size - 8.5 in x 5.5 in
Cardstock - Recollections 110 lb white; kraft
Stamps - Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz The Journey; Kitchen Sink Stamps: Whole Family;
