Just a little bit vintage...

This card came out to look a little bit vintage to me, but I love it! I made this for my sister who turns 32 next week. I bought this new lacy border punch at Wally World, it's Martha Stewart! Oooohhhh! (I am so NOT a Martha fan, but I liked the punch) This card uses a little bit of everything on it from Close to My Heart to Stampin Up to Prima. I have all supplies listed below. Thanks for stoppin by and takin a peek!

Shh, I have a little secret too!
I can not find my pop dots, have no idea where they have gone! To improvise, I used my 1" circle punch and cut out 3 circles from CS. I glued and stacked them together under the Happy Birthday center of the flower and it gave the same effect and only I am any the wiser. (Well, those of you reading this are too now! LOL!)

Supplies used...
Close to My Heart ~ Just Blooms Big Pinks, Barn Red Organdy Ribbon, Love charm, Barn Red textured CS, Colonial White CS, Pewter Bigger Brads, Barn Red ink & marker, Blush textured CS, Edge Distresser
Stamin UP ~ Scalloped Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, So Many Scallops stamp set
Prima~ red flowers
Martha Stewart ~ Lace Border Punch
Fiskars ~ 1/16th Hole Punch
Pattern Paper ~ oops, I forgot! :o( (it is double sided with the stripes & flowers I used)
Creative Memories ~ 1 1/4" Circle Punch

No Lion, You're the BEST!

No Lion, really!! I found an interesting sketch on one of my favorite blogs today and just had to try it. I just got this stamp set and was dying to make something with it. It is Close to my Heart's July Stamp of the month "Life's a Jungle". I think this turned out super cute. I got the idea for the mane from one of our corporate publications and had to give it a whirl. Thanks for stoppin' by!
