Fabulously Forty

I Made this card for my Lovely Husband's birthday :)
Using some of my Gorgeous supplies from

some of the lovely supplies I used include Collections Elements Printed Paper, Chipboard Shapes also from Collections, Foam Stamps (i haven't used them for ages) white paint, Versa Ink, Embossing Powder, my sewing machine of course, vintage sheet music, and computer generated wording.
I love this shot of the embossing powder on the wing of the bird, amazing how it just finishes off the chipboard shape, and adds a little bit of contrast of sheen, to the flat vintage music paper.

Have a happy day everyone :)

Gillian, I love your creativity. Often looking through my collection of junk, I wonder to myself - "What would Gillian do with this."

I would like to know how you get the great smooth edge when you adhered the old music to the chipboard bird, if you share your secrets.
