Seize the Birthday - floral

Happy Thursday my friends.  This week our Seize the Birthday challenge has the "Toppings" option of using flowers on your birthday project.  Of course it is an option and the only requirement is that it be for a birthday.  However, this is MY favorite kind of card to make using flowers.

For my card I used the Arianna Blooms stamp set and dies by Heartfelt Creations.  I stamped them in SU Perfect Plum ink on lavender CS.  After cutting them out, I sponged the edges with Perfect Plum ink and added clear rhinestones to the centers.  The MFT Leaf-filled Flourish die was cut from SU Pear Pizzazz CS.  The white panel was cut with Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight die.  I did some paper-piercing around the solid section and stamped SU Beautiful Birthday (retired) in Perfect Plum ink.  The DSP is from Our Daily Bread Designs Christian Faith Collection 6x6 pack.

Now check out all the fabulous creations by the design team over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will be inspired to play along with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
