Birthday Dandelions

I have a vintage-inspired, distressed, shabby card (that's a mouthful! :)). I used an image of one of my favorite plants to photograph, stamp and pull out of my yard! This stamp is Penny Black's Sparklers. I distressed the edges of the background papers, by Prima, before stitching it in place. The sentiment is by SRM Stickers.
I did the emboss resist with various Distress Inks.I used the darkest color in the center for the greatest impact. I adhered some Want2Scrap pearls in the center. I also distressed the edges of the panel and tucked a piece of lace underneath.
I'm entering this to the following challenges: SRM Challenge (birthday), Crazy4Challenges (Distressing, Fiber and Stitching), Virginia's View Challenge (stitching), Seize the Birthday, The Paper Players (color combo).
