Vintage birthday greeting on this birthday card

This is another card which I created from a card kit from this week's class.
I embossed this very shimmery pink cardstock and sanded the dots to highlight them.  I added a length of white vintage seam binding and glued this layer to the front of a white card.  I laser printed and then trimmed the vintage image from Graphics Fairy and layered it onto a green rectangle.  I trimmed the right edge with scallop scissors and pierced each scallop with a push pin to add interest and texture.  There was just enough room between the image and the scallops to add a thin piece of white flat fiber.  I adhered this element to the card front overlapping the seam binding.  I tied a short piece of seam binding with a single knot to the right hand side of the one on the card front which nicely simulates a bow.  I trimmed my greeting and flagged both ends, added a green layer and trimmed it to leave an even margin all the way around.  I adhered the greeting to the card below the image using 3D foam tape.
My favorite colour combination - pink and green!!  Love this card!
