Stampotique Challenge - A Humorous Birthday

The current challenge on the
 blog is to create a humourous birthday greeting.

For the background of my card I used old tissue paper
and book text that had previously been coloured with
Brusho powders and spray inks.
The saying of course isn't an original one, but
I thought it was quite fitting for poor old
'Prom Queen' who looks as though she needs a good haircut!

The hair is hand dyed (not by me) mohair fleece
and replaces Prom Queen's usual bunches
which I chopped off!

I printed the words onto copy paper and stuck them onto
the background.  They are edged with gold pen although it isn't
very bright.  The white dots around the words were made
with a white paint marker.

The challenge ends today so I'm just in time!

Thanks for looking,
 and happy belated birthday wishes
to Vicki who chose this challenge.
