CTD#227 - Simply Jane

 Hello and good morning!  It's my turn as hostess over at the Color Throwdown and since Valentine's Day is coming up, I chose a romantic color palette and inspiration photo for us to create with this week.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Simply Jane, The Sweet Life and Think Big Favorites to create a feminine looking birthday card.  I started out with a crumb cake card base, then a panel of vanilla and for my background, regal rose which I stamped with roses from The Sweet Life set.  I then stamped my sentiment along the bottom and added my banner.  After that I die-cut, stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder the frame from the Simply Jane set and added that and my die-cut and stamped cameo.  The last thing that I added was some small pearls to the cameo and my die-cut and stamped rose and leaves which I popped up using foam tape.
