Happy Birthday Vintage Style

Happy Good Friday to all my friends out there!  Well it is rainy and cold here, cold meaning in the 50's and not to get higher than 61 degrees here.  We have been having 70's and 80's so this is cold to us right now.  My granddaughters have even been swimming in the pool which is still too cold for me!

Today I am sharing a card with you that I did last night and it was inspired by the sketch over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  Vintage is not usually my style, but I wanted to give it a try and I am happy with the outcome.  I actually used a technique that I saw used on canvas and can not remember the name of it!  But I actually used a lacy type  of paper which is under the Happy Birthday and was sent to me by Nancy when I won blog candy from her blog "The Nickel Nook," and a sponge dauber.  That is where you see all the extra design on my Designer Paper.  It was fun to do and actually I thought turned out cute.  Might be called stenciling.  Anyway, it was fun and as I said before a little out of my usual!  I also spritzed it with Gold Glow Smooch Spritz which added even more pretty to it!

Here is a side view of the card!

And a close up of the tag!

Hope you can see that gold glow to it!

And love those insides!

Items used are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted!
Card Stock: Whisper White, Soft Suede
Designer Series Paper: Attic Boutique
Classic Ink: Poppy Parade, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight
I used the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle Punch to do the end of the tag for both pieces sticking the paper in from the back.  Wanted that scallop edge!
Made the flowers by using 1 1/4" and 1 3/4" circle punches and cutting it spiral and rolling into the flower
Bird Builder Punch
Button and white baker's twine
The design and little pearls were part of my blog candy from Nancy

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
