Birthday Sundaes Challenge #18 - Anything Goes

Hello Again Friends,

  Today I made a birthday card and decided to enter it in the Birthday Sundaes challenge. I used a stamp from The Rubber Cafe named Carousel Horse which I got a while back and have been wanting to put to use. Here is the card:

I used Cricut's Gypsy Wonderings for the card frame and welded a circle in the middle. I also inked the circle edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink. I embossed the card frame using an Inkadinkado background stamp and Stampendous Jeweled Gold embossing powder. The background paper I used is from K&Co.

I used lace which I tucked underneath the card frame and a Tim Holtz trinket pin which I am totally obsessed with right now :) I also added some cute Mulberry flowers from Recollections. I hope you all enjoyed my card.

Until Next Time,
