Sweet Sunday........Birthday Wishes

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

Sorry for the lack of post lately, I was gone for a couple of weeks on vacation.
 Had a great time with a some good friends in Pennsylvania. 
Now onto my card.

Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:

While traveling to Pennsylvania, we drove, I was surfing around the net on my tablet and saw the sweetest card made using this new stamp set from Taylored Expressions and was instantly in love, I ordered it while driving down the road and it was at my house 6 days before I got home!! So as soon as I could after getting home I made this card. I colored the flowers using my copic markers. I love flowers and Zinnias were my Grandmothers favorite flower, she had some in her garden for cutting every year!

I started my card with a base of the Stampin Up Natural Composition paper, this sheet has a wood grain BG. I then wrapped another piece of the paper with some Bakers twine. Next is a layer of Tangerine Tango and then the DSP is from the Retro Fresh pack. Then I added another strip of the Composition paper. I die cut a circle of white and a scallop circle of tangerine to mount my bucket of flowers on. this stamp set has a matching die cut to cut the bucket and flowers, love that! Both sentiments come from the stamp set as well.

I am also linking this card to the Seize the Birthday Summertime Challenge

Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun little sketch:
