Happiest Birthday Wishes goes Vintage

Well I've had 3 challenges buzzing round my head today and here's what I came up with.  

The card base is Early Espresso with a Peach Parfait mat.  I then added a Very Vanilla panel with the corners punched using the 1/2" Circle Punch and roughed up the edges with my paper snips I stamped the medallion stamp from Happiest Birthday Wishes in Early Espresso twice then again in Calypso Coral.  The centers were punched out using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and the 1" Circle Punch with the last circle popped up on a Dimensional. 

I attached some Victoria lace ribbon to some Linen Thread and then finished off the card with   Some Basic Pearls.  

Well I hope I've complied to the different challenges.  I'm sure the ladies will tell me if I haven't. 

CAS-ual Fridays - A party card with ribbon

The Friday Mashup - To follow a sketch or go Vintage/Shabby Chic or do both.  I've chosen Vintage. 

Woohoo it's the weekend.  I hope you have a lovely time planned.  Thanks for coming by. x
