Clean and Simple Birthday with Sonoma

I finally sat down and finished my final 2 cards for my Sonoma Card Box.  Remember that little project?  I know, I started it several months ago and have been making cards here and there to add to the box.  This is a Christmas Gift for my Grandma.  I hope she likes it!

I used the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping for this card.  It is really simple but elegant I thought.

I used the Sweet Moments (C1467) stamp for the roses and also the lace border across the top.  I stamped the roses with Smokey Plum. After trimming my roses, I distressed the edges with cocoa re-inker and a brush.  I used this same technique along the edges of the card.  The lace and sentiment are stamped in cocoa ink.  The birthday sentiment is from our Card Chatter - Birthday set (D1475).   My final touches are the Opaque Adhesive Gems - Mocha collection.  I added bitty gems to the lace.  Then I added a velvet bow from the Cocoa Designer Ribbon Collection (Z1316)

If you missed my post on the Sonoma Card Box you can see it HERE.  I won the "Make It From Your Heart - Cricut Sonoma Category for this card box!
