Shabby Chic Birthday Wishes
I used a stamp set that came free with the Crafter's Companion magazine from Crafter's Inspiration 2 (no longer available). You can get the same dahlia image from the full set of Sheena's A Little Bit Floral. The sentiment was also from the freebie stamp set included with the magazine. You can find the latest issue of the magazine here! There are different stamps, but still super fun items to receive!

Spray & Sparkle Varnish!
For the sentiment, I took the Memento Tuxedo Black again and stamped it onto a small piece of kraft I die cut out in a little banner shape. I took a small gem and stuck on the end for interest.
For the pennants, I just freehand cut them. This is a superb way to use up your stash of pretty papers. I just pulled out pieces that went together. I glued all that down to my base and started with the lace bow. I had a small piece that was PERFECT for this card and color combo!
For the center, I used a chipboard button I had in my stash and colored it in with BGR4. I added the Spray & Sparkle Glitter Varnish in Iridescent to that as well. Then I came back and applied Distress Ink in Tea Dye around the edge to make it more shabby. I took simple jute and looped through the button holes and tied a simple bow. I glued that down to the center of the lace bow. Then I tucked in the dahlias I cut out and the sentiment until it looked like I wanted.
I did get the idea for the layout from a card I had pinned on Pinterest. I highly recommend going to your Pinterest boards when you need a fresh perspective!!
