Birthday Bouquet

Hi, I'm here with a card I made on Friday - the last day of my week off work 😢 I made this card using both the sketch and colors at MFT Stamps.  I'm also linking this up to Sweet Stampin' who are celebrating their 8th anniversary - which is such an amazing milestone!

I stamped the three smallest images from Plentiful Petals using colors as close to the challenge colors as I had.  I then die-cut them and arranged them in a bouquet and held them in place with Press n Seal while I worked on the remainder of my card.

Black cardstock was used to die-cut some layered leaves and also the pierced square frame.  I white-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black and adhered it to the frame before adhering to a white card base.  Then it was time to position the flowers and adhere them in place.  I went over the centers of the flowers with clear sparkle pen.  Finally a few clear sequins to finish the card.

Thanks for visiting!  Back to work for me, tomorrow...
