It's a Birthday Celebration at Allsorts Challenge!!

Hello everyone, we are having a special Birthday week at Allsorts challenge as we are celebrating Allsorts' 14th Birthday!! What an accomplishment, well done Brenda running the challenge blog so smoothly all these years!! We are celebrating with a fabulous giveway of several prizes from the wonderful AALL and Create which you can see in the photo below. There will be several lucky winners so hopefully you will join us!

The theme is "Anything Goes" just be sure to follow our simple rules to be eligible. 

And here is what I made:

This image is from an older Penny Black clear set - Micey Day. I stamped on Bristol Vellum paper and colored with Distress inks and Zig Clean Color markers. I found the dotted frame in my box of scraps. Embossed background was done with a Sizzix for SU embossing folder.

I used an old cherry die from my design team days at Whimsy stamps so it's no longer available but maybe this would be an alternative option. The sentiment is from the Colorado Craft Company stamp set So Sweet. I embellished with natural jute twine by May Arts and some red sequins.
