Oh So Lovely birthday card....

Hello! This is my second post for the day!
Today I have a vintage card using a sentiment from the set, numbers4cake from The Stamps Of Life. TSOL had 4 new sets release today, so go check them out!
I used a strip of DP from Sasafrass Lass's Sweet Marmalade collection.  I then layered a doily that was sponged with orange inks, a scallop die cut from an old book page, a teal circle and a beautiful pink, vintage button from my stash.
I finished it off with some pleated eyelet lace and some baker's twine from The Twinery.

This is for this week's Tuesday Trigger, Oh So Lovely over on Moxie Fab.  The photo that inspired me:
This also fits this week's Play Date Cafe challenge.  The colors were the same orange, pink and blue/teal.
And last but certainly not least, for CASE study. I was inspired by Julie Tillman's layout for this week's challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
