Creative Connections #4: Party Hats

















“I am participating in a GC Creative Connection. I heard about this month’s GCCC - Party Hats - from Sharon Briss of http://gingersnapcreations.blogspot.com
Why not play along? Post a creation to your blog mentioning my post and the Creative Connection post on Gingersnap Creations. Let’s all craft it forward and see how far we can get this connection to go!”

For my card I used Shar's label technique again. I printed an A4 label sheet with an invoice from 1916, and used part of it to stamp my lion and window from LaBlanche. I used archival ink and clear embossing powder. Then I distressed the background with some TH inks before sticking on the labels. I gave the lables a *frame* made of sticky ribbon to give it all a window look. The party hat wearers are from a sheet of Men's images from June at *Dezinaworld*
I cut my three *men * out, gave them party hats and balloons, die-cut with Sizzix, and that was it. Was fun to make, as always.
Tomorrow I have to do things like housework and washing, not so much fun!
But had a wonderful time yesterday and today celebrating with my friends, so hope that will have given me enough strength to get at least the important things done!
Have a nice day, and thanks for visiting!
