MFTWSC210 - Happy Birthday with a Banner

One more Happy Birthday card done using the weekly sketch over at MFT Card Challenges MFTWSC210 . This is a new blog site MFT started this year which will have more challenges and looks like it will be a lot of fun and inspiration so make sure to check it out if you haven't already.

Also, joining the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Something New" which in this case is stamp set and new color card stock.
Here is my card:
Started with Blueprints 15 along with the Happy Birthday Background stamp using Sweet Tooth pigment ink and set it to the side to dry while I worked on the rest of this card. Pulled out some new card stock Tropical Teal along with Banana Split card stock as a mat behind it for the rectangle.

I've been dying to use this stamp set called:: Happy Banner since I think it's so adorable and love how she is holding up the banner with the words "HAPPY". I also used the matching die to cut it out and than colored her with Copic Markers. Next, I cut a Fishtail Flag using Pink Lemonade card stock and than went on to make this cute flower using the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose
