Wine themed birthday card

A quick-to-make male birthday card using wine themed printed images. I happy with the fresh summery feel of the colours.

The background stamp with the "Happy Birthday" score is from DRS Design. I stamped and heat-embossed it in silver. It has been pointed out that it looks like it's a fading effect - no, it's not second generation stamping. I'm guessing that it might be due to a combination of my slightly dry ink pad, a bit more pressure on the stamp than normal, and an embossing powder that doesn't have the word "detail" in its name... in short, just a lucky coincidence!

The product I used sold at Joan's Gardens is the X-Press It High Tack Foam Mounting Tape.

Such an elegant card! How did you get the music notes to fade as you did? Is that a second generation stamping?
