PPA131....Vintage Birthday Wishes

Happy Monday Peeps!!
Today I am sharing a card made using the sketch challenge this week on the Pals Paper Arts Blog.
I had a request for a vintage birthday card with some blue from a customer.
I started out with one of the label framelits and very vanilla card stock. I ran it through the big shot and left the die in place on top of the card stock and stamped my images and sponged all around the metal die.
I stamped the french script BG with crumb cake ink and then the flower images from the Simply Soft hostess set was stamped with timber brown stazon. I then sponged all around with crumb cake ink.
I colored the flowers in with my aqua painter using Baja Breeze ink.

I used the vintage wall EF on the soft suede card stock strip and sponged it with some early espresso ink. The DSP is from the Pocketful of Posies paper pack.
I added some crochet lace trim and an antique brad to the side as well. 
The sentiment is from the Occasional Quotes stamp set and stamped with early espresso ink onto very vanilla and sponges with a bit of crumb cake ink. I hand cut the end and matted it with soft suede. I used a punch from the itty bitty punch pack to make the little flower on the sentiment flag. I used a basic pearl in the flower center and three pearls in the top corner.
Hope she likes it, thanks for stopping by today and
