Julie: 'Sarsaparilla Celebrations' - vintage style card

Hello again.

Today's project is a card I made earlier this month, for my partner's birthday, using lots of 3DJean elements:
The main image is one of the Vintage Airline Playing cards which come as a pack of five and are a cross between regular playing cards and a foreign phrase book.

I chose a the card which teaches you how to ask for a drink in both Spanish and Portugese ... because knowledge like that can never go to waste ... particularly when someone's celebrating his birthday!
The 'Celebrate' greeting was cut from the kraft version of the Collections Elements 'Tiny Alphabet' sheets and glued on to a journaling sticker. The 'Mini chipboard star' is from the same Collections Elements range on to which I just added a smudge of gesso and Shimmerz paint.
The Sarsaparilla cap is one of the 'Vintage Soda Bottle Caps' available now in a pack of 5 random designs, it's simply mounted to the card with 3D foam:

For my backing paper I cut into my own 12x12 sheet of paper from the new October Afternoon  '5 & Dime' range - but there's actually an 8x8 '5 & Dime' pad available in the store.

Right then, I'm off to find the nearest Portugese bar ... anyone joining me?
