Phil Ate List Birthday

Hello.  Welcome.  Yesterday was a happy mail day.  I got a grab bag of stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps.  All the way from Las Vegas!  And a pink flamingo LOL.  I have been thinking about getting one of their lb's of rubber for a while and finally took the plunge.  I mean, pays your money, takes your chances.  Plenty good reviews on their website, and the negative ones are worth a look too ROFL  I was expecting lots of little stamps but most of these puppies were large part of sheets with diverse themes.  Cute to bizarre, small to large.  Some I'm not sure I'll use, although one of those got stamped tonight, but didn't make it into this project, so you never know.  This one caught my attention from the off and it gave me an idea.

 
I stamped VLVS Stamp Dispenser onto red metal, embossed with black embossing powder and fussy cut.  I cut a black base card using SSS stitched rectangle die and added black and white metal inchies.  I added the stamp dispenser.  Then I stamped MFP Happy Birthday from the Tiger set on white metal sheet, embossed and cut using Sizzix postage stamp die.  A perfect card for the philatelist in your life.
