Shabby Chic B-day

Well maybe this is really more vintage then shabby but it does have tons of layers and evoke days gone by. All the pp is from various pads. I hand cut the center out of the postcard and layered on pp with script on it. Swirl and gold sentiment were cut on Silhouette in white layering weight then heat embossed in gold three times. Red is cs with black sponging on edges and the pine-cone vellum was gifted to me years ago. Sentiment strip was printed on waterproof white sticker paper and I sponged a buckskin color ink to tone it down a bit. All is mounted on white cs base. Some of the pieces have been laying on my work surface for days and I was struggling to come up with a layout. Somehow, by just keep adding the pieces seem to fit.

Thanks for sharing your time and now I am sharing this with:
