Seize the Birthday #1 - Vintage Roses

Happy Tuesday Friends,
Today's post is for a new challenge that Lesley Croghan has started called Seize the Birthday.  The sketch will be used for a Feminine Birthday challenge one week and then again for a Male version the following week.  First time I have used Stampin' Up's Papaya Collage. I love the rose and frame images, and I just had to do a Vintage themed card.  I used stamp pads and markers to colour the roses and their leaves.  I Fussy cut the focal point, sponged some of the layers and embossed the Pretty In Pink mat layer.

Stamps:  S/U's Papaya Collage, Vintage Labels (R), Flourishes Nasturtiums
Card and Papers: Very Vanilla,Pretty In Pink, Crumb Cake, DSP Patterns Stack - Brights and Neutrals
Ink: Crumb Cake, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Certainly Celery
Finishing Touches: Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon, 
Cool Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Big Shot, Sizzix Lacy Brocade E/Folder, Papertrey Ink Tiny Tags Die, Bow Easy, Sponges, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dot
Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy stamping!
