Happy Birthday for The Flower Challenge

I made a birthday card for a friend using The Flower Challenge #21 - Use a Previous Challenge

After perusing the previous challenges, I chose Challenge #3 - Use an older stamp or die

I used a Sizzix/Hero Arts stamp and die set that I have had for quite a while.  I can't remember when I bought it; it was made in 2011 so I don't think it is available.  I stamped the flower/leaves image in SU Wild Wasabi and also in Cameo Coral.  I stamped the coral flowers twice and then fussy cut them, and shaped the petals, so I could arrange them how I wanted.  I clipped the green leaves image in sections also and rearranged them.  They are mounted with foam tape on a panel cut with Lil' Inker Designs Side Stitched Rectangle die.  I also added a butterfly from the same set and only glued it in the middle after shaping the wings.  The sentiment is from SU Beautiful Birthday (retired).  I stamped the background paper with MFT Diagonal Stripes Background in SU Cameo Coral ink.  The mats are SU Cameo Coral CS.  I added pearls to the flower centers and scattered some tiny pearls around the sentiment and mounted this panel with foam tape also.

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

Happy Stamping,
