Birthday Card for Several Challenges

 Hello friends.  I have a new birthday card to share today.  I made this using the colors from Color Hues Challenge, the sketch from Global Design Project;  Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and Happy Little Stampers Birthday Challenge.

 I die cut the flowers from some pattern paper in my stash.  I don't remember ever die cutting flowers from pattern paper, but thought I would give it a try, and they turned out great. I used Papertrey Ink Into the Blooms - Dahlia for the flowers and leaves, which are cut from PTI Tropical Teal Card.  I cut all 3 layers for the bigger flower and the 2 smaller layers for the small flower.  I shaped the petals with my fingers and layered them together, and then added a black enamel gem to the centers. The pattern paper is from PTI Bitty Big Tropical Teal Designer Paper Pack.  I die cut a stitched rectangle for the white panel, but had to partially cut it and then put the other end back in the die to make it wide enough to cover the pattern paper panel per the sketch from .  The birthday sentiment from a retired SU set is stamped in Tropical Teal ink and fussy cut.  I mounted it with foam tape.  The white panel is also mounted with foam tape.
I really like the way the card turned out, and hope you enjoy seeing it.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day

Happy Stamping,

TicTacToe Challenge (Flowers, Birthday Sentiment, Gems)
