20's Birthday

 Vintage images are great fun for me!  I merged one over the other to create this card front.  The "Socialite" is by Kenny K. Stamps - which closed almost a year ago.   The vintage car is a freebie from Beyond the Fringe.  The sentiment is by Inkadinkado
I colored the images with Copics and splattered the background with blue ink.   That mat is a dark blue paper liberally sprinkled with silver sparkles.  Two slits were cut at the top and bottom right side and a blue satin ribbon was introduced from the back and run around to the back of the mat to secure as an embellishment.  I am a big fan of flat, easily & cheaply mailed cards - always looking for ways to add ribbon or embellishments that won't trigger the Post Office clerk wanting another stamp!
Create wildly and color with abandon!
