Happy birthday

It's Thursday!

I've been feeling very inspired by bloggers such as Nerina , and her gorgeous card here . And also Mona and her beautiful card here .

Despite the fact that I can't quite master the shabby chic/vintage style that these ladies beautifully display, I set out to make a soothing, monochromatic card with a hint of color. I knew that I wanted to emboss with white on kraft cardstock.
