Use Embellishments with Smudgy Antics - Week 1 of 2

Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics!
The theme for this challenge is to - Use Embellishments.

I kept it pretty simple. A standard sized card, stenciled the background, layered with a shiny metallic paper, another layer of stenciled background paper, stamped image colored in with metallic chalks, added some traditional fabric ribbon, made some paper fringe, used my Lifestyle Crafts Polka Dots embossing folder on some handmade paper and finished it off with a Stampin UP! Happy Birthday phrase. Too bad my photography skills are lame and the card looks so flat. :sigh:


  1. Lovely your embellies. Thank you for joining us at Smudgy Antics this challenge.

  2. I adore your birthday card with its many layers, torn paper, and use of stencils. Your ribbon and paper fringe are the perfect embellishments for the feel of your card. I love the grungy vibe! Thanks for playing along with us at Smudgy Antics this fortnight :)

  3. Wonderful card bristling with layers and interesting effects! Thanks for joining us over at Smudgy Antics!!
