Wishing You A Happy Birthday

Happy Thursday stamping friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this week there is no "Toppings", just make it a birthday project.
For my card I decided to use a loopy flower that I found the tutorial for here.
I used some colored jute I found at Michael's and coordinated the papers with it.  The DSP is from a 12/12 pad by My Mind's Eye.  I used SU Rose Red (a perfect match) and Whisper White.  I also used the SU Scallop Ribbon Border punch.  The sentiment is from MFT's Spring Tulips and is cut with a die from MFT's Blueprints 20.  I fussy got the Rose Red mat.  The leaves are cut with MFT Royal Leaves die.  I sponged Old Olive ink around the edges and shaped the leaves a little for dimension.  The white panel is embossed with SU Decorative Dots EF.

Make sure you check out all the fabulous creations by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  Can't wait to see what you are inspired to create.

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