Celebrate Your Birthday Today

Joining the Sparkle & Shine Challenge with this cute sketch design they had which gave me another chance to play again with these cute flowers from The Big, the bold, and extra stamp set. Also, joining Seize Your Birthday challenge once again.
Here is my card:
Almost went all red on the flowers, but thought to change it up so once again, I played around with my distress inks and watercolor paper to create these colorful flowers, but not as vibrant as the previous time. Used some paper from the Stacked with Love and really enjoy the patterns it has.

Used my Blueprints 18 to help me cut out the patterned papers and along with using the stitched circle it came with. This way it leaves the stitches on the outside as well as the inside. Once again, fuzzy cut each one after white embossing.

Popped up the kraft panel since I almost made this into a shaker but change my mind at the last minute. Final touch was to add some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenges, go check them out to see wonderful ideas and inspiration. They have amazing design teams.
