Vintage Birthday

I made this card for a very special young lady. She's talented, beautiful, and likes vintage style. I enjoyed making it so much that I decided to use the same style on a couple more cards, which I will be posting soon. 

Paper: Sand, pink, light blue vintage vanilla cardstock; velum paper (Paper Studio).
Tools: Craft knife, precision scissors, permanent dot runner, embossing and cutting machine (Big Kick by Sizzix), circle punch, gray colored pencil and brown fine writing pen, computer and printer.
Stamps: Happy Birthday, May your birthday... (Stampabillities)
Stamp ink: brown, black, yellow 
Embellishments: paper roses, Eiffell Tower and picture corner (Spare Parts), pink ribbon, lace with pearls, dark brown pearls.

You can give your card an 'old look' using two tones of brown distress or stamp ink. Just rub the stamp pad gently on the edges of the velum paper.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Have a wonderfully blessed day.
