A Vintage Birthday Card

Hello Friends!  I have a card to share with you today that I made for a sweet young lady.  Something vintage and full of movement.

I had found a scrap of this pretty paper that had been given me a long time ago.  Just waiting for the right project. I added a touch of inking around the outside of the layers to soften the edges.  Then I added some lovely lace and a bit of string.  Then it still looked kinda lonely so I added a couple layered flowers under the bow.  The larger flower having sparkles that matched the touch of pink in the paper.  Then for a finishing touch I added some fun buttons that I just took off an old shirt. It's fun when those details come together.

Here's a close up of the flowers and bow.

Thanks so much for dropping by! :)  Hope you have a delightful day!
