DCM LE - Postage Stamps

I couldn't wait to get started on this weeks' little extra from the DCM team! I had spent half the day, bored stiff at work, clicking the refresh button waiting for the challenge so I could sit & design my card.....oops, did I say that, I mean dream about my card design while I sweat over the spreadsheets. lol!
I collect used stamps from various friends & twice a year I send them on to the RSPB, where they sell them & the money goes to various projects. Saving the Albatross has been the current one. I also recycle my ink cartridges from my printer this way.
My friend, Joy, has sent some gorgeous ones & I knew these would look just right with some vintage collage. I really wanted to put a title on this card, but people are strange about it. I put happy birthday on one & a lady said, "Oh I would have bought that if it didn't have birthday on it". I asked what she wanted it for & she replied, "My friend's birthday"!!!
Paper is Papermania Inspirations, Earth Tones. Vintage bits,Picture & Postcards, Ephemera pack.
I think this one has an Edwardian feel to it.
