Crazy 4 Challenges.....Birthday Wishes

Happy Thursday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch challenge this week at Crazy 4 Challkenges.

This week it was a sketch challenge:

I flipped the sketch and decided to pull out a set I love and have not used in awhile.
Stampin Up Pleasant Poppies. I decided too make a bit of a vintage/grunge card.
I pulled out the retired French Script to use in the BG. I stamped the script using Crumb Cake ink, that was stamped of once before stamping on the paper.

I then stamped the poppies on using Black Stazon and colored with my water brush and ink pads.
I stamped the flowers again onto some scrap paper and colored the flower heads. I cut themout and added them over the base with some foam tape.

I used one of the new in colors for the flowers Tangelo Twist.
I then pulled out a new set to use for my  element across the bottom, I stamped the image from Butterfly Basics twice using Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the little postage image onto some scrap and cut out and added with more foam tape. I then sponged the image base using crumb cake too.
I added a small sentiment flag using the Petite Pairs stamp set. 
I matted the image with Tangelo Twist card stock and then added to the base.

Well, thanks for coming by today!!
