Pink, Green and Brown Birthday Card

Happy New Year!!!
2013 is finally here!!  Can you believe it?  WOW!!
New year, new goals, new friends, new memories and new creations!!!

This is my first card for 2013 and I created for today's challenge at Sweet Stamps.
This weeks theme challenge is:
LOVE how this came out!
I used Mums the Word Silhouette stamp, as the focal image.
I colored the flower and leaves with my Distress Markers (Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint).
After I finished coloring the images, I applied some love by misting it very lightly with water.
I then stamped it to my cardstock, matted on Bazzill brown cardstock.  The Happy Birthday Script sentiment was stamped with French Roast Shades ink. The patterned paper is from MME Indie Chic: Saffron, matted on Bazzill Kraft. I dyed some seam binding ribbon using Peeled Paint re-inkers.  The paper lace was created using Border Carnivale by Cheery Lynn Designs.  Finished by placing on the Bazzill Brown card base and a Basic Grey button and burlap ribbon. Finished card measures 4.25x 5.5.
