Splitcoast Color Challenge....Birthday Greetings

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made for my second week guest designing with the Color Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers

Our colors this week:

Midnight Muse, Strawberry Slush, and Pear Pizzazz.
Tell me, what is there not to love about this combo? I can make my fave kind of card, anything with flowers!!!

I started off with s base of Crumb Cake and then some Pear Pizzazz DSP from a retired in-color pack and matted that with some white card stock. Next is some  Midnight Muse DSP from the Print Poetry Pack and I added a punched border to the edges of that using the dotted scallop ribbon punch.

The flowers come from the Secret Garden Stamp set and is stamped onto some rustic white card stock and then colored with my aqua painter and my Strawberry Slush ink pad. 
I cut out my base flowers using the Secret Garden framelit dies and cut out the next layer with my paper snips and added them over the base flower with dimensionals. I mounted my flowers onto a paper doily with a circle of crumb cake card stock layered in the middle. I die cut a few leaves using the same framelit dies and added them around the flowers. I added  a scrunchy triple bow with an antique brad in the center. 
I finished it all off with some large basic pearls in the flower centers and three regular pearls in the upper corner. 

Hope you enjoy my creation. Thanks for stopping by!
