MFTWSC240 - Happy Birthday to You

What a fun sketch over at MFT Card Challenges with MFTWSC240 so wanted to give it a try and play around with some crafty stuff. Also, joining the Seize the Birthday with this week "Anything Goes" with the topping "Embossing". 
Here is my card:
Started with an A2 white card stock base and heat embossed it using white embossing powder along with the background stamp called: Garden Flourish from MFT as I wanted to create a resist background to blend in some color, Tickled Pink, one of my favorite.

Afterwards, I used the stitched A2 rectangle from Blueprints 25 and ran through the die cut machine. Next, I went on to create the middle and decided to use my Pierced Square dies to help me with it.
For the bigger square, I used Ripe Raspberry cardstock and than cut out 4 smaller squares using white and pieced them together. Added some craft foam under the square to elevate this little platform and give it some dimension. 

Added the Leaf Filled Flourish using Green Envy shimmer paper and created the flower using Mini Hybird Heirloom Rose along with felt. The sentiment was from the set called: Pretty Poppies which was heat embossed using white powder. Added some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge, please stop over to check out all the inspiration.
