Birthdays with sentiment

Morning and hello! It's TPS week here on my blog. That means at least one posting and it's for the new challenge over at the Paper Shelter. Our theme of the week: Birthday cards with sentiments. Any birthday card will do, but it needs to be a fitting sentiment for a birthday. Nice and easy!

For my card have I used the lovely image called Vintage Car. It's great fun to colour it and I happen to adore images from that era even if this is a mix of fantasty and old times. I went for a grey combo once again together with some pink and green for the flowers. The flowers reminded me of rosehips roses that was every where when I lived on the tiny island called Rörö when I was a kid. When I moved into my first own house, what do I find in the back yard? Yepp! Rosehips roses. We only have one plant of them left now as we have dug them up, but one refuses to give in and comes back every time. So we let that one stand. I think it should be there to remind me of Rörö, at least that how it feels.

Well this started out as a male birthday card. Now I am not so sure as I have plenty of pink on it, but isn't that the new blue? LoL Anyway, I dug out some new left overs from my wedding kit from Authentic and a Prima pad with only numbers and letters on then in earth tone. Love are you both. Anyway as the flowers are pink and yellow I decided to go pink with my card stock. I matched it all up with some bright happy pearls to that and then well, in come more and more pink. LoL Some of the flowers are pink as well. I think I need to buy a spray bottle with black paint in it for my flowers and chases like this. LoL

For decoration have I also used a piece of a chain for a neckless and a clock charm. Well, I know that attached to this image is a speedometer, but I only had a clock and that has to work for my on this card. I have only glued the ends of the chains so the rest is free to move. Kind of cool at least. I have also raised the upper and lower panel so that they are low outwards from the card. The piece facing the card is raised up on foarmpads. I would probably have looked better if I have made my image a tiny bit smaller but this is what I got to day and I have to be happy about that. :) Two flower clusters in the same design and some letter stickers spelling the word "Gratulationer", kind of like congratulations in English. I am really proud of myself getting this together and up with the post. Never thought I would manage this today as my joints are really painful. And I had a dead line on another card I had finish today. Wonder what I do wrong as I never seems to be ahead anymore. Too many teams? Too little time? I go for the last one. Oh well, life is like this from time to time.


As always we have a gift voucher worth $30 up for grabs if you play with any TPS product. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three (3) digis of your choice. There is tons of fabby images to choose between and you are sure to find something that will suit you. 

Well my friends, I hope that I will be able to get my photo up and running later on today. After work and before my work out. It's time to try starting it up again. And the worst part is that I fell absolutly nothing in the terms of joy for this project. This will be my medicine does the doctor say but it didn't work so good last time. I worked out way to much and got it wrong because of that. Since I have been saying to my self that work outs are boring. I should never do them again. Yet, here I am giving it another shot. I hope that my new instructor have some fun plans for me as I am in no mood for the same old boring stuff. Well, just have to wait and see won't I? Four o'clock I will be at the gym, getting tortured. That's how it should be for a couple of months. WooHoo???!???

Love n hugs

This is a pretty card and it would be good for either a guy or gal...not too much pink but just enough. And guys aren't adverse to a little pink or peach..they just don't like to be surrounded by it. Hahhaha! I love the chain and clock and your papers are perfect for the image. Pretty flowers, too. Hugs, Gail
