Fun Birthday Card with The Stampsmith

Hi Everyone!
Today I have a fun birthday to share with you.  I used an image from the"Those Were The Days" full sheet by The Stampsmith.  I just love this stamped image for belated birthday cards.  I think it is funny.  LOL.

I stamped the image on a glossy white pre-cut piece of CS.  I am not sure where I got this cs.  It was either at Michaels or a garage sale.  But, you could use a plain piece of glossy CS and die cut it.    I used black dye ink to stamp.

The purple ink was added with a distressing tool (Ranger).  The card base is made from dark Purple CS from Stampin' Up.  I added some funky ribbon (Michaels), brads, and die cut paper flowers (Hero Arts).  The Yikes sentiment is included with the "Those Were the Days" full sheet.

I added a belated birthday (My Sentiments Exactly) sentiment on the inside.  So, a very fun card.
