Quick Quotes Farmhouse Birthday Card

Good morning, today's project is a sweet birthday card.  I am using the retired Quick Quotes paper collection Farmhouse.  These papers are just so pretty and feminine.  I added to the femininity with the stitched scallop border punch from Creative Memories.  I manipulated the edges to flare out.  I added a bit of fancy rickrack along the seam of the papers which IRL is a delightful touch, the picture does not do it justice.  

I used this sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday last month...but forgot to post in time to play along.  It is hard to see but I did add 3 tiny pearls just to the right of the tab.  I stamped, embossed and punched the sentiment then popped it up on dots.

  2. Your papers are really pretty. It's good to see that old stamp in use - I'd forgotten about it and seeing it again made me think how useful it is. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge this week.

  3. Hello QQ teamie! I have those papers too! Lovely birthday card with pretty details! Thank you for playing along with us at Retro Rubber!

  4. Lovely card Alicia. I love all the elements you have used to match that sketch. The popped up scalloped edge is a great touch and keeping it monochrome makes it very feminine. Thanks for joining us at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week. Tristan DT

  6. I have that stamp too!! I totally overuse it. I love the shabby / beachy chic feel of your card, makes me long for summer and walks on the beach collecting driftwood. Thanks for joining us over at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
