Vintage Vogue Birthday Card

Yesterday was my mom's birthday and this is the card I made for her.  I used the "Vintage Vogue" set and the words are from the "Well Scripted" set.  Both sets seem to go together SO well. 

The base of the card is white.  The next layer is a piece of Pretty in Pink that was textured with the Vintage" Wallpaper" embossing folder.  On top of that is a piece of Pear Pizazz card stock that had the edges punched with "Pinked Hearts" punch.  On top of that is a strip of decorative paper from the "Paisley Petals" package.
The circle was from a giant 2-3/4" Paper Shaper punch that I had. I sponged the edges with Pretty in Pink ink and then I stamped the words on.  I know!!!  "How brave!"  Normally I would stamp the words and then punch the circle.  I had punched the circle to see if it was a good size to work with and I didn't want to waste it.  Fortunately it worked out and I was able to use it.  I tied a piece of ribbon around the decorative paper and attached it to the green card stock.

The flowers were stamped on card stock and cut out individually.  In the center of each one is a pearl.  I thought about using the rhinestone but the flowers were just too "vintage" for them and thus the pearls went on.  And I'm glad they did, I like them on there SO much better.  

It was a very fun card to make and I love these colors together!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
