Happy Birthday Vintage Inspired

This probably isn't very vintage to some...maybe I'm using the word vintage wrong. Maybe it should be Victorian inspired? I'm not sure all I know is that it's soft, romantic, girly, feminine and oh so pretty. 

 I used papers from Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line as well as some scraps from Echo Parks Country Drive or Springtime...I also cut up a doily to add some "lace" to my banner.

I used a white gel pen to add a little faux stitch to the pink banner and to ink the edges of the blue banner. I also inked the edges with distress ink and turned up a little corner. I've seen the little up-turned corner on a few cards and thought is was super cute.

I am linking this up to the Moxie Fab Doily and Lace Challege.
And the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

Have a wonderful weekend!
