Birthday Wishes

It's almost the weekend - Yay! 
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and has some great plans for this weekend.  I'm planning on enjoying some family time.  I made the following card for my son's girlfriend for her birthday.

I again used a piece from  I still ahve tons left and they make such a great focal point.  I recycled a flower I had and this key I found.  I had  this sweet tag and some Really Reasonable Ribbon with some added pearls.  I thought the striped pattern paper went really well with the whole "vintage" theme.  Of course I distressed everything with Tim Holtz.  I need to get more creative in that area.  Birds and vintage go so well together how could I go wrong.

I'm tryin out some new challenges too.  If you know of one that's especially fun mention it and I'll check it out!
