This birthday card started with this flowered patterned paper that I got in a swap. I think it's from HOTP, but not certain. The pink also came from the swap. I used a technique I often use and die cut the elements (Spellbinders dies) used for focal & matting from the part of the larger pink mat that would be covered by the patterned paper.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed with fine white embossing powder. The border is made with a snippet of lace that I threaded a pink ribbon through and attached before gluing the patterned paper to the card.
