Birthday Greetings

Happy weekend all.   Thanks for stopping by.  It's a beautiful day outside today.  I think the bright, cheerful weather inspired this card as well as two challenges:  Twisted Tuesday Challenge #6 - birthday card using ribbon and Freshly Made Sketches #34.

For the card base I chose Pink Pirouette card stock.  Two pieces of Cheerful Treat designer paper were matted with Melon Mambo card stock
and added to the card.  The sentiment from the On Your Birthday stamp set was heat embossed on Bashful Blue card stock with VersaMark, Concord Crush ink and clear embossing powder.  A piece of Concord Crush ribbon was added as well as a strip of Melon Mambo card stock at the bottom.  This layer was then attached to the card.  One of the flowers from the Flower Fest stamp set was heat embossed four times - three were done with VersaMark, Concord Crush, Bashful Blue and Pirouette Pink inks and clear embossing powder.  Another was done with VersaMark and Melon Mambo embossing powder.  I fussy cut them all, making each layer a little smaller.  I added a Concord Crush brad in the middle and attached the flower to a piece of Melon Mambo card stock punched out with a scallop circle punch.  Dimensionals were used to add it to the card.  The "legs" of three Concord Crush brads were taken off and the brads added using dimensionals.  That's the how-to for this card.  Thanks for coming by.  Have a fun, creative weekend.
