Seize The Birthday #12

Here's my birthday card for Seize the Birthday #12 sketch challenge.

I used SU Very Vanilla and Primrose Petals CS.  The DSP is from MME In Bloom 6x6 pad.  I love the pretty papers in this pad.  The flower is from Verve's One Person Set stamped on DSP in Primrose Petals ink.  I stamped two layers, cut them out, inked the edges and mounted the smaller layer with a foam dimensional.  I added a pearl to the center for some bling.  The leaves are from the same flower image, but I stamped them on SU River Rock CS, cut them out and attached them behind the flower.  The sentiment is a single stamp from Verve "Birthday To You".  I stamped it in Primrose Petals ink on an oval (tip: I traced the inside of the Lacey Oval die and cut it out as my SP ovals did not match up) and matted it with a Spellbinder's Lacey Oval.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate your comments.
