SOS #222: Birthday

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week's theme is Birthday, and we'd like you to use something from your oldest birthday stash. It may be a stamp, or paper, or an embellishment.

For my card, I used a very old sentiment stamp:

I masked a piece of water color paper with painters tape, and used Distress inks to paint the background. I flicked some water on it to make spots, stamped the sentiment, and stuck it on with foam tape.

I couldn't find paper or card stock to match the blue, so I made my own with more of the same Distress ink. For my last act, I added a few pieces of Martha Stewart star confetti.

I'm sure you have ooooold birthday supplies in your stash. Why not dig them out and play along at SOS?

Thanks for stopping by!
