Vintage Birthday

This card took me so long I wouldn't admit it if I would have kept track of the time : ) It just didn't look right no matter what I tried. Still not so sure I'm loving it?? I always admire the vintage looking cards but find them difficult to do. When Joan's Gardens challenge requirement was to include distressed edges I immediately thought "vintage".  I used a stamp for the first time that I won from Joan for one of the challenges. I am also entering this card in the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp "Anything goes". Check them out. So here's my finished project. In case you're wondering the flower at the bottom is purple although it doesn't look like it on the picture.

 Stamps used LaBlanche (don't remember the name)
Webster's pages paper
THoltz ink Crushed Corduroy
I used a bit of dimensional glaze on the purple flower and Sage green Flowersoft
The rest is just bits and peices from my stash.
