CAS Stencil Challenge - Happy Birthday

Hello friends.  I made this card for the CAS Stencil Challenge  - Embossing Pastes/Gels.
For my card I used a Tim Holtz Plaid stencil and Finnabair Snowflake Paste, which has glitter in it.  I added a drop of SU Petal Pink re-inker to a small amount of the paste and mixed it good, then spread it over the angled stencil in a small area.  It really sparkles in person but doesn't show up in the photo.
 After it dried I mounted it to a Petal Pink mat cut with a scallop rectangle die.  The sentiment is from SU All That You Are stamped in Soft Suede ink to match the center of the flower.  The flower is from SU Painted Seasons - I love the flowers in this set - stamped in Grapefruit Grove ink, stamped off once, for a lighter shade that goes with the Petal Pink.  The leaves from the same set are stamped with Pear Pizzazz.  I die cut them with the matching dies and mounted the flower with foam tape.  The flower center from the Daisy Delight set is stamped with Soft Suede ink and punched with a 1/2" circle punch.

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

Happy Stamping,
