I hope you can see that I distressed the Crumb Cake card stock using my SU distressing kit, added the piece from an earlier challenge using polka dot embossing folder and then smooching with spritz. My next layer I used versa mark to stamp the Roses from Elements of Style and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I scrunched Very Vanilla satin ribbon, added some Pearls to the side. Stamped roses on crumb cake on Crumb Cake card stock using soft suede. Then using my Big Shot and Beautiful Wings embosslit to make Butterflies. Stamped my Birthday Greeting and I am done.
