New Seize The Birthday Challenge

Happy Thursday morning everyone.  It is time for a new Seize The Birthday challenge so hop on over and join the party.  My fellow Design Team members have created some wonderful creations to share with you and anything goes as long as it is for a birthday. Here's my card.
For my card I used last week's Mojo Monday sketch #315, turned sideways, and this week's Just Us Girls 211 color challenge.  I love blue and brown together and this retired SU Parisian Breeze DSP was a perfect choice.  I love the texture in the paper also.  The card base and flag banner is SU Baha Breeze CS and the mats are SU Choc. Chip.  The sentiment is a retired SU stamp - I just love that swirly font - stamped in Choc. Chip ink and cut with Spellbinders Classic and Scallop Rectangles.  I inked around the sentiment with Baha Breeze ink and also pierced the border.  The flower is from Verve's Sunny Days and is stamped in Choc. Chip ink on some of the DSP.  There are 2 layers with a foam dimensional between the layers.  I also inked the edges of the flower with Baha Breeze ink and added a pearl brad.  The Baha Breeze banner is cut with Verve's Pennant Trim die. The leaves are from Spellbinders Our Daily Bread Designs Fancy Foilage die.

Thanks for stopping by.  I really appreciate your comments.
