A Floral Birthday Card

Good evening, my crafty cronies.  My last post was on Monday... so I guess it's about time I made a card and broadcasted it. There's a birthday coming up this weekend and I really don't want to miss it. Like I said, it's about time I made a card! My inspiration came from this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches... with plenty of artistic licence.

The background paper is from First Edition Spring Feast. 

 I mounted the flowers and buttons on foam tape. For cutting and layering the
greeting I used SB Scalloped Squares.

All Clearly Besotted stamps here. The polkadot blooms, individual leaves and 
buttons are from Fancy Florals; the leafy spray is from Leafy Accents and the
greeting is from Tag Along.
The sentiment is from It's Your Birthday, stamped with VersaFine Black Onyx.

Some challenges:

Tuesday Morning Sketches #242: Sketch - stretching it a bit :-)
Colour Throwdown #285: Colours
Seize The Birthday: Buttons and Rhinestones
WordArt Wednesday #125: AG Uplifting
Simon Says: AG With Buttons - die cut buttons
Paper Crafting Journey: AG

That's all from me this evening. What an exhausting day it has been. I'm so grateful you took the time to stop by this evening, but it's waaay past my bedtime and I'll drop by your place tomorrow. Nitey-nite!
