Happy Birthday Wishes for JUGS #231

My card is for the Just Us Girls #231 technique challenge to make a weathered wood background.  They even have a link to a video here showing how to create the background.  I had to give it a try as I like trying new techniques and am very pleased with how it turned out.  I took a piece of SU Early Espresso CS, scored every 1/2 inch and then swiped my SU Whisper White Craft ink pad over it.  It made the CS look gray.  I added the Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish, cut in Certainly Celery CS, which I cut apart and arranged to fit my flowers.  The SU Petite Petals are stamped in Basic Gray ink on a scrap piece of yellow DSP and punched with the matching punch. I cut small slits between the petals and shaped them with my fingers and glued them on.  I added some yellow rhinestones to the centers.  The sentiment is from SU Simply Sketched, cut with MFT Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Flag Layers.
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping,
