A Birthday Easel Card

I am participating in Celebrate the Occasion's current easel birthday card challenge #26. I used Cricut's "Nifty Fifties" cartridge for the dress, Cuttlebug folder "Swiss Dots" for the background and two rubber stamps from Great Impressions number G416 the rose bush (cut with a Spellbinders die) and number H212 a lace frame for the bottom element. Of course I used a clear happy birthday stamp! I love how it all comes together and looks back to the 50s!
