"Vintage" Paper Birthday

Here's a birthday card I made this afternoon. The patterned paper was inspired by a card that Nichole of PTI showed off in her post today. (Its the 2nd to last card in her post.) It's just too pretty so I thought I'd try it out. I made some extra pieces of this paper to use in my background swap on SCS - hope my fellow swappers will enjoy it!
I started by stamping the flower image in Melon Berry ink on quarter sheets of Vintage Cream. card stock. I went back and added the leaf image in Ripe Avocado ink and then added the Text Style background stamp over all of it in Dark Chocolate. A little bit of corner rounder action and a sentiment from Damask Designs and there you have it. I really like this paper - I will have to try it out in some other color combinations!

Supplies Used (all PTI unless noted):
Card stock: Vintage Cream, Kraft, Ripe Avocado
Stamps: Garden of Life, Background Basics: Text Style, Damask Designs
Ink: Melon Berry, Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate
Accessories: Melon Berry grosgrain ribbon
Other: Paper trimmer, Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, corner rounder punch
