Girly Birthday

Good morning peeps!  How are things going in your neck of the woods?  Hopefully your week has started off well!

I have a birthday card to share with you today.  Something a little different than my usual style.  I have to admit, it was so much fun creating this one :)

I absolutely ADORE these papers by Authentique.  They scream girly and make you wanna pull out those frilly froo-froo embellies like I've added here :)  This little cutie was colored in Copics and then distressed with some pink Studio G Chalk Ink.  The shimmery cream and charcoal textured cardstock is from Wassau.  The pink rose and clock are both by Recollections.  I created the rolled roses by hand since I don't have a die for that and then added pearls in the center.  The self-adhesive pearls in the upper corner and on the sentiment are by Paper Studio.  I also did some punchwork with a Fiskars punch.  The sentiment is from the 21 Special Occasion stamp set by Cardmaking & Papercraft.  The lace trim was in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek.  Hope you have a wonderful day!
