Shabby Chic BirthdayCard

As soon as I saw TOMICs latest challenge I knew I'd participate there. I loved the sketch, and the picture, meant for inspiration, really do inspire!
I rushed to find the papers and stuff I wanted to use - then I had to figure out what I wanted to do with the papers...
After a little while surfing around I came to I Love ProMarkers challengeblog.
They wanted us to "Get Distressed"... and wait a minute - wasn't that what the challenge at Magnolia Stamp Lovers was also... checking, checking... Yes, I remembered right.
Then I'll distress it - I may have come to that conclusion anyway...
So there I sat, tearing and ripping, embossing and distressing, punching and dieing - oh, and waiting for the goldcolour to dry(!) It seemed to take days to dry, but actually it was just a few (too many) hours...
Inside the card I used my new Spellbinders "Twisted Metal Tags and Accents" - aren't those swirls the loveliest! I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page to make the labels inside.
On the back I used the same Spellbinderset as where the swirls came from (I used it on the outside, as well - it may be a new favourite :D).
I like to decorate all sides of the card (think it's more finished with all pages decorated), and that's what Sukkersøtt wants us to do in their challenge #139
Simon Says Stamp! has a Anything Goes challenge this time, and says they'd love to reach "the magic 1000" - I'd love to help them reach that number of participants - wouldn't you...

Below you'll find pictures of the in- and backside of the card, and a list of the challenges I'll enter my card into :)

  9. I have observed that of all sorts of insurance, medical care insurance is the most controversial because of the struggle between the insurance policies company's duty to remain making money and the customer's need to have insurance policies. Insurance companies' revenue on overall health plans are low, so some corporations struggle to gain profits. Thanks for the thoughts you share through this blog.
