It's time for the November challenge! "It's a Feast"

It's time for a new challenge!
One Sweet Challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers,
and this time the theme is:
"It's a Feast!"

I took one of the Ching-Chou Kuik's Rubber Stamp called:
"One and Only Heart". 

This gorgeous stamp is availble as a single rubber stamp,
but also availble as a sheet # 24, plate 68
with 2 lovely sentiments stamps:
"Happy Valentines Day
"If I had a single flower for everytime I think about you
I could walk forever in my garden"

This stamp is also availble as a digi:

I colored her in with distresspads.
And added some sparkles with some glitters.
Than I embossed the image with Clear embossingspowder.
I added 3 layers for a smooth look.
I decided to give it a little vintage look.
So I put the image in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
After I took it out of the freezer I cracked it.
I distressed the cracks with distresspad Walnut Stain.
It looks old right now.

The base of the card is Kraft cardstock.
I used several layers of designpaper from Prima "Fairy Rhymes".
I also added a cakedoily in between.

The flowers I made from dies of Memory box.
For the centers I used wooden buttons.
The leaves are from Magnolia Doohicky's.

For the final touch, I added a chipboard sentiment
"Happy Birthday
It's Feast, afterall! 

I hope you like the card.
Don't forget to check out the other DT-members.
