Aged to Perfection Birthday Card

This is a great stamp set for almost any occasion.  It is from Fiskars and called Aged to Perfection and is a clear stamp set.  The sentiment on the outside reads "Heard it through the grapevine" and on the inside "Like fine wine you only get better with age!"  I thought this would make a great birthday card for the wine connoisseur. 
The cardstock used is Stampin Up Pale Plum, Perfect Plum and white.  I embossed the first layer with the Stampin Up embossing folder Vintage Wallpaper.  I also used a purple and gold wire ribbon on this layer.  For the next layer, I used the grapevine stamp and Always Artichoke ink.  The grapes were stamped, colored with Copic BV17 Deep Reddish Blue and G99 Olive, cut out and layered on top.  The sentiment was stamped and cut out using the Nestabilities Petite Oval Small and Petite Oval Scallop Small.
