Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock.  Cut a scalloped border from a strip of green striped paper, and sand the edges.  Sand the edges of a polka dot paper, adhere the scalloped edge to the left side, and wrap lace around the seam.  Sand the edges of a rose paper block, and adhere to the top half.  Diecut the label from patterned paper, stamp the bird's nest & sentiment to the front, and then sand the edges.  Punch a hole in the label top, thread ribbon through it, and adhere the entire piece to the layered paper block.  Adhere the entire layered paper block to the card front.  Tie a bow from matching green ribbon, stitch a button around the center with twine, and adhere right above the stamped label.  Stick two pins through the top of the ribbon.  Add three pearls to the stamped bird's nest, and three flowers to the lower left corner of the stamped label to finish.
