Shaped Card: Vintage Birthday

Hi, friends!  I've got a very special card to share with you today!  It features our monthly technique from Technique Time Tuesday--Embedded Image!!!  Basically, it's a bunch of embossing over top some patterned paper or any paper for that matter!  I hope you'll pop over to learn how and to create your own creation with the technique! :)  But onto the meat of this post...

Here's my card~

Details~





For these fabulous challenges~





I've used patterned paper by Pink Paislee, image stamps by Prima, clear embossing powder by Stampendous!, black glitter embossing powder from my stash, rhinestones & pearls by Studio 112 and Zva, die cuts by Spellbinders, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

If you're wondering how this card "shows some love," then I shall tell you!  I like to send birthday cards to friends that I feel need a little pick me up.  Sometimes I make a special card with a specific person in mind--this card is just that!  I've been told that my cards always help others feel loved and that is always my goal!  Isn't crafting wonderful?!  I hope you use your talents to help others feel loved--I'm SURE you do! :)

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  I hope that you're inspired to create something today and that you'll join in these amazing challenges and try our technique at TTT found HERE!!! HUGS and happy stamping! :)

Love the unique shape of your card and I'm swooning over those pretty little stick pins! The color combo reminds me of the 50's...not that I was around then...but you know TV and movies!!!
