Vintage Birthday Card

I really like how this card turned out ! 
All supplies used (other than the border punch)
were bought from Stampin' Up! some time ago.

The textured Crumb Cake Coredinations card stock was run through
 an embossing folder then lightly sanded to create the background.
It is layered on Blushing Bride card stock and the Vanilla card base.

The rubber stamp image was colored with water based markers
(Regal Rose, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede).

The stamped image was cut out with a die.
Another die in the set was used to create the pink layer underneath.

Two mini flat back pearls attached to the stamped panel.

Dimensionals underneath the stamped panel at the top and bottom
to help hold it in place over the pleated Blushing Bride ribbon
and scalloped punch border

Thanks for looking =) 

It's been some time since I've taken the time to enter challenges.  I'm entering this card in the following two challenges I have participated in many times in the past:
Crafting By Designs - Pink, Pretty and Girly   (probably not quite as pink as the challenge coordinators expected , but it is pretty girly!)
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Sunny Day Crafting - Scrapbook or Anything Goes (this would be wonderful as part of a scrapbook layout. adhere it with a photo of the birthday lady or use it as part of a pocket page layout)
