Grungy Friday 13th!

Before you all go on about friday the 13th being unlucky, I'll stop you right there, I don't believe it, It's a lucky day, Today especially as it's my Mum's Birthday
Happy Birthday Mummy x Love you xx
Seems these past few weeks i've managed to be grungy on every day but a monday!
But hay it's the taking part that counts right, no matter what day!
So here is my late offering for this weeks Grungy Monday
The prompt is taken from Tims 12 tags of Christmas 2007 day 8
I did the effect on my tag using snowcap dabber and victorian velvet distress ink, and I backed my tag with some grey textured card to highlight the word I had cut out using one of Tim's fab dies.
I embellished with a rosette topped with an spun sugar stained fabric rose, and some glassine elements.
Thanks for hopping by, Hopefully blogger will now behave itself after all the problems of the past few days!
Stay Inky

Minxy, you've like King Midas: everything you touch turns to gold! This tag is just fabulous, and I love your clever use of the GM06 technique on the diecut. Pretty colors, too, and the winged rosette is fab!

I've always thought Friday the 13th was a lucky day, too! I hope your Mum had a great birthday!
