Shabby Soho Subway mosaic card

I finally managed to get round to putting in my first order last night. And did I stick to my wish list? No, of course I didn’t. Does anybody ever do that?

I had some free stamp sets to redeem thanks to a bumper Sale-a-Bration (demonstrators are rewarded for sales and recruiting with free stamp sets during SAB)

*** If anyone heard shrieking in the Amber Valley area just now, that was me… one of the cats brought a bird into the house, just like it was a normal, everyday thing to do. He’s never done that before. ***

Anyway, back to stamping.. and relax.

So on my list of stamps to get, I have Chalk Talk, Gorgeous Grunge (desperate for this one!), Tape It, Giggle Greetings (with a question mark), World Map, Wetlands, Remembering Your Birthday and Sketched Birthday. I don’t have many sets left after the new catty clearout, so I can justify a lot, eh?

So what did I order? Chalk Talk, Wetlands, Remembering Your Birthday and Flower Power Shop (thanks, Kathy!) Flower Shop? That wasn’t even on the list! But… but… but… it has a co-ordinating punch! And we all know how much we love a co-ordinating punch. And WHY didn’t I get Gorgeous Grunge, when I’m so desperate for it? All I can say is I DON’T KNOW!!!

But those lovelies aren’t even on their way yet, so back to today’s project, which I shamelessly CASEd from Sera Lewis at Pink Paper Bakery.  It has lots of elements which please me, from the Summer Starfruit background (love that colour) to the Soho Subway paper (have I mentioned that I LOVE that paper? Probably) to the dirtiness around the edges, which I achieved with a sponge dauber and some Crumb Cake ink.

Hope you like it – and thanks to Sera for the inspiration!
