MFTWSC224 - Happy Birthday Sunshine

Wanted to play with some NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff) that has been sitting around so pulled out this cute stamp set called: Everyday Is A Picnic and playing with the MFTWSC224 sketch over at MFT Card Challenges and one more card for the Simon Says Stamp Wed challenge of backgrounds.
Here is my card:
Changed up my color combination again and this time using some Grout Grey with Orange Fizz and Sour Apple. It's always good to experiment and see how colors change a scene and design. As always, used my Blueprints 13 for the base stitched mat. Also used Blueprints 5 for the center rectangles.

To create the background, I wanted a tone on tone look so used Grout Gray ink and Gingham Background stamp as my base and than used my Copic markers to color in some sky and grass for the middle. 

Used some foam mount under this cute little girl to add some dimension and Glossy Accents on the flowers. The sentiment is from the set: Birthday Greetings (Another NBUS). Always good to go through stamp sets and see what hasn't been used yet.

As always, if you haven't already checked out the challenge sites, go check them out to see all the wonderful ideas and inspiration.
