This is my 1000th post!

Good evening folks.
As I was typing this post I realised that this would be my 1000th post, I just couldn't believe it, where has all the time gone?
Anyway the reason for the 1000th post is the new challenge at HLS CAS, so here is my inspiration for this months theme,

For this masculine card, I stamped the lion's head from HLS Born to be Wild stamp set in Memento Potter's Clay, then quickly embossed it with a WOW Semi dull EP on a dark cream textured base card. From some more of the same card, I die cut a frame using Spellbinders Petite Scalloped ovals and plain ovals sets. Cutting another from beige fun foam and I glued it under the cream one to lift it off the base. 
Using the same ink and EP I stamped the Happy Birthday below the lion's head and on a scrap stamped the top half of another sentiment from the set, which I then cut out using a banner die.

So that's that.
Please check out the rest of the team here and then why not join in

  3. Congratulations on 1000 posts, thank you for inspiring us so many times. This card is another great and great inspiration. I love the color scheme, it gives the impression of a card from the beginning of the last century. I also love this pledge stamps, they are so amazing!
