Vintage Birthday.

When I was making the TAP transfer tags here I found that two of the images had left a residue of the picture still on the contact paper. (The instructiuons do say you cannot over iron and you really do need to iron the transfers to within an inch of their life!!)
Now not one to waste anything I thought that these could probably still be put to use.
By laying a piece of sparkly organza over the image I found it not only darkened it down but gave a lovely mellow look to it.
I used a cream sheet called Cream Sparkour available from here and this is the resulting card that I made. 

Flowered backing paper is by Nitwit Collections 'Thimbles & Threads' and was a freebie in a magazine. Seasoned followers of my blog will know where the lace trim came from! Butterflies are a Tonic punch and sentiment is a clear stamp by Wow. I die cut a nestie to cover the image and trap the organza in between.
Entering into the following challenges:
Emmas Cards Uk: Vintage.
Hiding in My Craft Room: Free style anything goes.
Charisma Cardz: Happy Birthday
All Sorts: Vintage.

It is cold,I think it will be cold forever. It's global warming, the gulf stream is slowing down and we will all be set solid in ice! I just walked on the cat, he crept up silently behind me and i didnt see him and so now I've got to take him to bed with me to make amends..
Now I will go and look at our posts, I think I missed a few

Yes, that would have been too good to waste. What you did is really lovely.
People of lesser character would have put it to one side or worse. I always love the bits you are meant to throw away. We must be sisters:)
