Special Birthday Wishes

Today, I have a card to share........ 

Wow!  It's been a long time since I sat down to make a card!  I've been using cards from my stash. 
I put this card together for my daughter.  Today is her birthday.   Happy birthday, Jenny! 

My card base is 5 x 7" cream card stock.  All patterned papers are by Melissa Frances including the rose sticker.  I used a new Spellbinders die, Romantic Rectangles Two, to cut the lacey edge rectangles.  The edges were inked with Distress Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I also stamped faint script around the edges of the background paper.  I stamped "you are so special" on a narrow strip of sticker to add to the rose piece.  The embossed foil was cut and embossed with a new Spellbinders Gilded Life die, Petite Lace.  Love the lacey look!  The foil is gold.  I sanded it lightly to reveal some of the silver color.  Then I sponged Spa Blue paint over it and wiped off the paint on the embossed areas.  My card actually started with this piece!  It was an experimental piece that I really like so I found papers to go with it.  The seam binding was misted and crinkles to look old and tied into a loose bow.  I've tucked a small stick pin with a bead into the bow.

Happy creating!
