Just forget the world

I thought I might not have time to make a card for Daring cardmakers this week, but their challenge was to be inspired by a Cold Play song, Chasing cars, and I love that whole CD. Also I need a male birthday card for a family member next week, so I decided to have a go, and here is what I made.

The stamp is by Crafty Individuals.

I have actually used a Christmas backing paper from the Artylicious CD, Season's Greetings, but the holly is hidden underneath the image.

The panels are cream card distressed with antique linen, tea dye and rusty hinge ink pads.

The letter tiles are from an A4 sheet in my stash that is ancient, and its origin is forgotten. I like it because I have a Woodware punch that it fits perfectly.

The swirl was cut using a Marrianne die, and sprayed with That Special Touch, copper mica mist.

The lace edging is a Martha Stewart punch, and the birthday greetings is a copper peel-off.

I am entering this card for the
Daring Cardmakers' Challenge: Chasing Cars.
Truly Scrumptious Challenge 57: Anything goes
CrfatyCatz Challenge 83: Anything goes
