Repetition - For You on Your Birthday!

Needed another birthday card, so I decided to make one based on repetition from Lesson #11 over at the MFT Summer School along with Lesson #14 of color satuaration where I combined the low satuarated colors with the high saturated colors. Than as I was thinking of it, I remmember my friend loves shaker cards, so I incorporated that as well. Also joining over at Seize The Birthday  

Here is my card:
Here I worked with Blueprints 23 and focused on using only the dies from this set to create my base and card aside from the flowers which are from the stamp set: Modern Blooms. I loved using the low saturated colors against the high saturated colors for the flowers along with the repetition of the flowers and circles.

For the pink, I used Cotton Candy and Ripe Raspberry, for the blues, I used Summer Splash and Tropical Teal, and for the orange, I used Peach Bellini and Persimmon.
After, I die the center white panel, I used the grid stencil to emboss it giving it some added texture. For the scallop edges, I used the Steel Blue cardstock. Next, I added some acetate and foam mount around the circles and along the edges of the panel. Added sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to match up with the colors of the flowers.
Here is a close up view of the embossed grid stencil on the white panel. Also, I used foam mount to pop up the flowers. Added the little yellow buttons with Lemon Chiffon card stock using the same Blueprint 23. Last but not least, added a white dot to the center of each flower using my white sharpie pen.  

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set: Birthday Bears and white embossed it against black licorice card stock and used one of the banner die from blueprints 23 to cut it.
