Seize the Birthday...Vintage Birthday Wishes


Happy Sunday Peeps!
Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at Seize the Birthday.


This week it is feminine birthday cards we are to make. My favorite!

I pulled out the Stampin Up "Best of Flowers" stamp set and stamped this pretty hydrangea onto some confetti white card stock twice. I colored the image with my aqua painter and ink pads, I used Not Quite Navy and Pear Pizzazz. I added a bit of More Mustard for the flower centers and used some Crumb Cake to "age" it a bit.
I cut out the flower headon the second image and added it over the first with some dimensionals.
The main image is die cut with my circle nesties and the image is matted with a "Delicate Doilies" die cut.  



The base of the card is Night of Navy, that is sadly retiring and then a layer of the confetti white card stock.
All of the DSP on here is from the Stampin Up "Fan Fair" paper pack.
The sentiment is from the "Made For You" stamp set. I used my circle punches, 1-1/4 and 1-3/8 for the sentiment and mat.
I added a bow made with some very vanilla seam binding ribbon that I swiped through my crumb cake ink pad to age it a bit and added a crumb cake corduroy brad to the center. I finished it off with some basic pearls. Looks a bit "vintage" don'tcha think?

Thanks for stopping by today.
