Birthday Blessings

I combined three challenges for my card today -  Color Q #252
I had fun with these 3 challenges and really like my finished card.  The card base, mats and sentiment flag are MFT Smooth White CS.  The DSP is from SU Fresh Prints Mat Stack and Certainly Celery from the Subtles DSP pad.  The Crumb Cake panel was embossed with SU Lacey Brocade EF.  The sentiment from Verve's On Occasion (and is on sale right now) is stamped in Early Espresso ink and cut out with MFT Fishtail Flags Stax dies and matted with Early Espresso CS.  The flower (my favorite) from Verve's One Person (Retired) is embossed on SU Real Red CS and layered with foam dimensionsls.  The leaves from the same set is stamped on Certainly Celery CS with Certainly Celery ink.  I added a white enamel dot by My Mind's Eye to the center of the flower.  The corners were rounded with the SU Corner Rounder punch.  The red ribbon is recycled from a gift bag.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
