Vintage Birthday

Time for another Cuddly Buddly Let's Keep Creating Digi Challenge and the theme this time as chosen by Sharm is "Vintage, Distressing & Flowers".  For this challenge I got to work with Bits of Ivory digital images from artist Barbara Williams, so I choose Garden Glimpses 2 and Sentiments One

I printed out the sunflower image three times onto kraft cardstock and then colored them with Copics.  Each image then received a coat of Ranger's Distress Crackle Rock Candy Paint.  The base of the card was created with the following layers:
Card - brown cardstock
 Yellow cardstock
7 Gypsies Botanical paper - crumpled, torn, and inked
Kraft cardstock - crimped with an paper crimper and inked
Wide Cream ribbon and bow
The sentiments were also printed onto kraft cardstock, cut with decorative scissors and inked.  The three images were mounted onto the card with pop-up dots, and pearls were added to the top corner.
I am entering this card into the following:
Scrapbook Sisters - #50 Anything Goes
I Brake For Challenges - IBFCC8 Shabby Chic
Top Tip Tuesday - #49 Shabby Chic
