FMS.......Birthday Wishes

Happy Friday Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I made using this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.

This is a fun sketch and you all know I love a square card!
I decided to try to make a Sunflower card using the "Best of Flowers" stamp set.
I stamped the stem and leaves from the hydrangea flower with Black ink onto some Very Vanilla card stock and then used the Daisy type flower head for the Sunflowers. I stamped a few of them with black ink onto some scrap white and then colored with my copic markers.
I then cut out the flowers and added them to the stem and leaves on the vanilla card stock using some dimensionals. The leaves are colored with copic markers as well.
The Greeting comes from the Wetlands stamp set.

The DSP on here all comes from the Sweater Weather pack from Stampin Up. The base of the card is Early Espresso card stock and I matted with Sahara Sand and Crushed Curry cardstock.
I added some borders in Early Espresso using the Finishing Touches Edgelit dies. Finished it all off with some basic pearls.
 I LOVE these pretty Sunflowers!
Thanks for coming by today!
