Happy Birthday for The Flower Challenge

Hello friends.  I have another birthday card to share today.  I am linking to The Flower Challenge - add sparkle.

For my card I used some new stamps from Pinkfresh - Layered Bouquet Stamp & Die set for the pretty blooms and Diamond Tiles for the background.  I stamped the background in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added a thin black mat.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the layered flowers & leaves in Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamino (flowers) and Pear Pizzazz & Old Olive (leaves).  I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers and I tried to get a good photo of it, you can see it some in the photo below.

The sentiment is from an older SU set and I embossed it with white on black and hand cut the flagged ends.  I mounted the fowers and sentiment with foam tape.  I was pleased with the final card.  You will probably see these flowers on more cards as I die cut and stamped several of them.

Thanks to Darnell, I will be adding this to her NBUS Challenge also as I had not used the flower stamps before.

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

Happy Stamping,
