Antique Glimmers Birthday

It's Holly here today, and I'm sharing this lacy and romantic birthday card with you.  The cards that I make the most are birthday cards and Christmas cards, and I love having birthday cards on hand when those special days pop up.
I started with an Antique Glimmers technique from Technique Junkies for my background.  The patterned paper on the left side matches my background piece beautifully, so I used that as inspiration for coloring the fancy image from the Shabby Chic Labels 4 stamp set with Copic markers.  I used a Stardust Clear Glitter Pen on the fancy vines for a sweet shimmery touch.  You can see the glitter in the close-up picture.  This fancy image was cut out with a Labels 4 Spellbinders die.  I stamped the "Birthday Wishes" from the Birthday Sentiment Set and cut it out with a circle die, and then I matted it with its matching scallop circle.  I used foam dots to adhere the sentiment to the center of the fancy label image.
Did you see the gorgeous lace in the store?  This Ecru Delight lace is beautiful!  I used two strips of it on the left side of my card and then adhered a small piece of brown cardstock in the center of the two pieces of lace.  A row of pearls really sets off the beauty of the lace.  

Here are the products from Classy Cards 'n Such that I have used on my card:
