Vintage Birthday

Hello my friends! With all those Christmas cards I've made recently, I've missed making a Birthday cards and coloring a digi image and using digital papers. So here's one I made on the weekend.

Most about using digi paper I love that I can add digital stitching to them. I used freebie paper from Bearly Mine Design and made my own pink pattern paper for peeking through.

Girl's dress is digitally paper pieced from the same BMD pattern paper and flowers are paper pieced old fashion way (with scissors) from my own pink paper.  Image is colored with Pro- and Flexmarkers and I added some stickles to her wings and golden gel pen to her jewelery and flowers.

The rose is made with SB Rose Creation dies. It is actually made earlier this year for another card but I didn't use it. The edges of the petals was inked with Tea Dye distress ink. To make it mach with my current card I added Tattered Angel Coral Reef Glimmer Mist to the flower and some Cotton Candy Stickles to the edges.

I was happy with this card until now. I just noticed I've forgot to add stitching around the poem. How could I not see it before?! It bugs me now. Ohh, silly me...

Stamps: Fitztown - Fae 2

Papers: Bearly Mine Design - Steampunk 1 freebie; CraftworksCard card base; Cart-us - Christmas Collection; Green and white cardstock
