erwin...forever young (distress inks)

Time for inky fingers again.  Gotta love distress inks.  And Erwin, our neighbor - gymnist in his younger days, loving Opa today - celebrating his 80th.

I like to make these personalized collage cards - and decided to keep two challenges in mind when making this.  Lily Pad's Simon Says challenge wants stars.  And Simon Says Stamp and Show wants something for the boys.  OK.

Heat embossed the sentiment and distress inked the BG.  Stamped and heat embossed the nest, masked and stamped the branch.  Added some leaves and stars.  Added Erwin (photocopy) with an "e" on his chest and gave him a crown.  Even at 80 he's open to English so I went with the sentiments in English.  The 80th is stamped, the other PC generated.  Rounded corners and distressed edges.  Mounted the image on CS and distressed and made it into an oversized tag.  Put in a vellum envelope since I was hand delivering.  Like it when the "artwork" shows through.

Thanks for looking.
