Happy Birthday Wishes

Happy Thursday friends.  We have a new challenge for you over at Seize the Birthday and this week we have  
Of course it is an option and you just have to keep it a birthday theme.

I divided the main panel of my card in thirds using the 3 colors of my flower, pink, yellow & green.  I used the older SU Subtles DSP of Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery and So Saffron in the same stripe pattern.  This is my first time using that beautiful flower from SU Birthday Blooms.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with Promarkers, and then fussy cut it out. I mounted it on a panel cut with SU Lots of Labels Framelits die.  The sentiment is from SU Simply Sketched.  I fussy cut the black mat around the die cut and mounted it with foam tape.

I am also entering my card in Just Us Girls Word Week challenge #333 - use flowers (my favorite thing to use on my cards).
and Darnell's NBUS #6 (never before used schtuff) since this is my first time using the Birthday Blooms set.
Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Now check out all the wonderful inspiration from the design team over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will play along with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
