Vintage Birthday

Today's creation is a vintage card. Its not a style that comes naturally to me but I am pleased with the finished result. The papers started life as pale pink before I added vintage photo distress ink, distress crackle paint and distressed the edges with a pair of scissors. I have picked out the flower design and covered it with Anita's clear gloss and sprinkled with glitter. The image was from a kit I purchased from a TV channel some time ago. To finish the design I have used organza & satin ribbon, lace and paper roses. The butterflies are made from a punch by Crafts Too and finished with pearls, and a few buttons sneeked in. I am going to enter this in the challenge over at Stamp Something which has a theme of Distressed Somethings. Thanks for looking. Jenny
