Happy Birthday Card

This week's Card Patterns sketch is by Nina Brackett.  Its a simple layout that can be made up in so many ways. I can't wait to see what the other designers do for this one

Here is my take:

I needed a birthday card for a good friend and for some reason I was feeling all vintagey tonight :)

The main color is Concorde Crush (probably my favorite In Color this year) and I used Sahara Sand as a light neutral to stamp the music notes (you can imagine its the notes to Happy Birthday, but I'm not really sure what it'supposed to be )

The flowers, and viney background image are from SU! Vintage Vogue.  The sentiment is from Fillable Frames #4

I also added a little bling with some black rhinestones on the flower centers

Thanks for stopping by!
