Vintage Happy Birthday

Hi there!  I have an extra special card to share with you today that I made for my mom's birthday.  It was yesterday but we will be celebrating today with a yummy meal and some cake!  My mom loves vintage finds and is amazing at locating these treasures at the Flea Market, garage sales and ebay!  Her house is a treasure trove of 30-40's vintage goodness.  For my card I tried the rolled flower technique that I have seen all over blog land.  Rae Barthel had a great tutorial on her blog awhile back.  I used some more of my crinkle ribbon and a different kind of tag from Martha Stewart Crafts.  I will be back tomorrow late to show you my card for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  Thank you for stopping by today!  I always love reading your comments.
