INVENTORY CHALLENGE No. 49 - Happy Birthday

Happy day to you dear friends,
It is the beginning of a very special weekend. My hubby is 61 today! and tomorrow, we will be celebrating 34 years together. It is also  Rene's daughter's,  birthday today! Happy Birthday GRACE!  No surprise that our Inventory challenge theme today is BIRTHDAY . I have decided to make a masculine card. I honestly don't know why... but it is Captain Edwin who presented himself to my mind when I was searching for an inspiration. So, Captain Edwin it is. Since I loved the movie Pirates of the Caribbean, I decided to inspire myself with this special  "vintage" style.I used digi stamps from Make it Crafty and my papers are from BoBunny, Barefoot and Bliss collection. The lovely jute is a gift from my dear friend Christina. My images are all colored with Prismacolor and solvent, on Bristol paper. I have stamped a little shell on a Tim Holtz  acrylic charm with Stazon, and colored it with Copics; The map is embossed with Distress Vintage photo powder, I do love the burned look of that powder. Edwin, the map and the sea up front, are all in 3D.  Well this is it for me.



Bon matin chères amies,
C'est le début d'une fin de semaine de célébrations chez nous, Pierre, mon mari, a 61 ans aujourd'hui! et demain  ce sera notre 34e anniversaire de mariage.  Que le temps a passé vite! Ce n'est pas un hasar, que le  thème de notre défi soit "Bonne fête", car en plus de Pierre, la fille de Rene, Grace a 6 ans aujourd'hui. J'ai donc décidé de créer une carte masculine. C'est Capitaine Edwin qui s'est présenté à moi, alors que je me demandais dans quelle direction mon inspiration allait se diriger... Comme j'ai un faible pour la série de films le Pirate des Caraïbes, j'ai voulu donner un style ancien, à ma mise en scène. Je me suis servie des étampes digitales de Make it Crafty, et mes papiers sont de BoBunny, collction Barefoot and Bliss. Le joli ruban de jute est un cadea de ma chère Christina. Toutes mes images sont coloriées avec du Prismacolor, sur papier Bristol; l'embossage est fait avec la poudre Distress Vintage Paper, j'adore le look brûlé et vieillot, parfait pour le parchemin. J,ai utilisé une petite breloque de Tim Holtz, coloriée avec du Copic, sur laquelle j'ai étampé un coquillage avec du STazon. Edwin, le parchemin et la vague en avant plan, sont tous en 3D. Voilà, c'est tout pour aujourd'hui.



I have left an opening on the top of the chest image, to place a gift card, or money.
J,ai laissé le dessus de l'image du coffre dégagée, pour insérer une carte cadeau ou de l'argent.

Happy Birthday to your husband - Pierre. Gee that sounds so French. I know why you chose this theme - because Pierre is the captain of your ship. As far as the treasure chest is concerned - money is good. This is one jolly good scene card. You are so clever. Love the map - love the waves -- one fantastic adventure card!!
