Just Add Ink #100

Hey Everyone

It’s Just Add Ink’s 100th challenge this week.   Happy Birthday JAI!!!! I’ve been playing along with their challenges since I discovered blogland about a year ago and I’ve always found really cool themed challenges and great inspiration from the design team.  This week their challenge is to – Just Add a Crown.  The reason for the crown?  When you turn 100 in Australia you receive a letter from the Queen celebrating your milestone birthday.

Be warned – there’s lots going on with this vintagey card, but once I started I couldn’t stop!  Here’s what I came up with:

I love Artistic Etchings but I’ve never inked up the crown up until now.  It took me a while to figure out what I was going to do with it, so in the end I put eyelets in the crown and key and tied them to the top of the tag.  Here’s a closer view:

This card won at Just Add Ink this week.
