Green Vintagey Florals

Hello, today I thought I would share a card I made for my sister's birthday:

The floral stamp is from papermania and is stamped in adirondak lettuce onto a fancy square cut using an xcut die.  The green background paper is just from my paper drawer not sure who made it.  The embossed border across the middle is from the pampered pets range by docrafts.
I got all the pieces of the card assembled and then distressed them all a bit using antique linen and vintage photo distress inks and added a bit of the lettuce in here and there too to tie all the colours together.  I layered it all up added the brown ribbon, the little happy birthday tag and a few pearls.
All done!
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
