Happy Birthday

ETA:  My card was chosen as one of the Honorable Mentions at Freshly Made Sketches.
I combined two challenges for my card today.  I used Freshly Made Sketches 98 and the Paper Players Color Challenge #158.
All supplies are from Stampin Up, except the 2 buttons from my stash.  I used Very Vanilla, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Pear Pizzaz CS.  The DSP is from the Venetian Romance paper pack and I sewed around the edges before adhereing it to the card base.  I stamped the En Francis background stamp in Pear Pizzazz ink on the small VV square for some added texture.  I cut the Little Leaves Sizzlet from Pear Pizzazz and added it to the square.  The flowers from Fabulous Florets are stamped in Strawbery Slush ink.  I only glued part of the flower down and bent the leaves up for dimension.  The sentiment is from Create A Cupcake and I added the rhinestones for a little bling.  That's it for my card.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your comments.
