CASE Study #30 - Post Card Birthday

Hello...I'm finally back!  It's been a few weeks since I participated in a challenge; and I've missed it SO much.  I love challenges :o)

I made this birthday card (the bday sentiment is on the inside) for a good friend.  I am really loving the vintage style of cards lately and they're so much fun to create.  I'm no expert, by any means.  But, I'm really pleased with how this card turned out.
I did a lot of distressing with inks...on just about every piece of card stock and patterned paper.  The cute post card image is a new stamp (to me, anyway).  It's from a company called Just For Fun.  I picked up this stamp - and quite a few others - at the StampScrapArt Tour last weekend.  I, along with several other fellow stampers, attended the show/expo.  We had so much fun!

Oh yea...back to the card.  This card is going into the following challenge:
