Seize the Birthday 19 and Color Throwdown 246

Sorry for all the posts today but I am trying to get caught up with some challenges.  I am glad if I get one card posted on some days. This is my card for Seize The Birthday 19 and Color Throwdown 246.
ETA;  Yea, my card won the challenge at Seize the Birthday.

The color challeng had me stumped for a little while, but I tried several different DSP and flower colors and finally settled on these.

The card base is Pear Pizzazz CS. The DSP is from 3 different SU packs.  The white mat and sentiment panel is SU Whisper White.  I stamped the SU Happy Birthday sentiment in Old Olive ink and matted it on Old Olive CS.  I stamped the flowers from SU Secret Garden in Rich Razzleberry and cut them out.  The top flower and sentiment panel are mounted with foam tape.  The leaves are from Build A Bird punch and the fern punch is a MacGill punch, all punched from Old Olive CS.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your comments.

Happy Stamping,
