Holly Brown: Antique Glimmers Birthday Wishes

Hi folks!  It's Holly posting today, and I hope you're doing well this week!  I'm sharing this lacy and romantic birthday card with you today.  The cards that I make the most are birthday cards and Christmas cards, and I love having birthday cards on hand when those special days pop up.

I started with an Antique Glimmers technique from Technique Junkies for my background.  The patterned paper on the left side matches my background piece beautifully, so I used that as inspiration for coloring the fancy image from the Shabby Chic Labels 4 stamp set with Copic markers.  I used a Stardust Clear Glitter Pen on the fancy vines for a sweet shimmery touch.  You can see the glitter in the close-up picture.  This fancy image was cut out with a Labels 4 Spellbinders die.  I stamped the "Birthday Wishes" from the Birthday Sentiment Set and cut it out with a circle die, and then I matted it with its matching scallop circle.  I used foam dots to adhere the sentiment to the center of the fancy label image.  Most of the supplies on this card are from Classy Cards 'n Such - a TJ vendor.  

I used two strips of ecru lace on the left side of my card and then adhered a small piece of brown cardstock in the center of the two pieces of lace.  A row of pearls really sets off the beauty of the lace.  You can see the gorgeous shimmer of the Antique Glimmers background in this picture below:

I hope you've enjoyed this card that I've shared with you today.  Have a wonderful day!
