Beautiful Birthday

I played with this card for a few days as I was unpacking the shack.  I used to make a lot of more shabby-chic cards... I love that vintage and girly vibe. How's this?:

I plan to enter this into Seize the Birthday and Cute Card Thursday, both Anything Goes.  Woo-hoo, two Thursday challenges on a Thursday!  Whatttt???

  • The background paper came from a DCWV paper pack, which I got for xmas from an awesome family friend.  I inked it with the following Distress inks: Mowed Lawn, Victorian Velvet, and Frayed Burlap
  • The cake came from DP by Melissa Frances
  • Doily by Wilton inked with Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo Distress inks and stains, then I wiped the seam binding through those inks, then I sprayed them all with Picket Fence Distress Paint... got some overspray on the background as well.
  • Liquid Pearls in White and Rose Gold
  • Flowers bought in bulk and inked with Color Box Chalk in Creamy Brown.  Pearly stamen amongst the flowers are Wilton


  1. Each one of these post has been different from grunge to total coolness now to utter elegance. I love your ease of style. I'm blown away with your use of this paper. Totally made it fabulous!!!

  2. A beautiful soft and feminine creation, you've arranged those flowers so well...
