Grungy Monday #20, Ginger's Babes and Tots, SSSS Bling!

Our incredible and fun leader of Grungy Monday, Linda, has invited us to a "Distress Stickles" party.  The first thing I did was to fold a piece of brown card stock and cut it out using my new cabinet die!  I just moved the folded edge in ever so slightly!  I then used the movers and shapers mini cabinet and cut a frame, which was embossed with one of Tim's folders.  The stamp is Tim's and this I embossed using craft brown ink and then colored with Distress Inks.  The numbers and letters were also cut using Tim's Typeset.  I added the Distress Stickles after all was inked and was careful not to smear the color.  I cut out the ribbon edge to fit over the frame.  Simon Says Stamp and Show is looking for some bling and I think this might just have enough bling.  Gingersnap Creations GC113 is Babes and Tots and well my son is my baby!
This is a birthday card for my son!  I think I might cut out some letters for his name and put on the banner, but not sure.  Kind of did not care for the HB and covering the heart, so those might get picked off!

Thank you for the visit which I do love!

Distress Stickles: Rock Candy, Fired Brick
Distress Inks:  Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Barn Door, Fired Brick, Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy
Craft Chocolate Chip, Clear Embossing Powder

Awesome Terry! I can actually seen the stickles sparkle. You must tell me how you captured that on film. Instead of HB You could put his initials but if you are going to do the banner you probably don't need both. I do love the embossed background and colours too.
Keep Well,Chris XO

Wicked cool! I love all the texture, and I think you should leave the HB, and add the name. Yep, all-out, cuz this is all-out fabulous. :)

Awesome card. I actually do like the "HB", although the date certainly suggests the birthday theme as well.
