Freshly Made Sketches.....Birthday Wishes

Hello Peeps!!

I had a bit of time yesterday to play at my craft table so I took a peek at this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

What a fun sketch huh? I decided right away to use some pretty flowers for the circle elements in the sketch, (no surprise there).
I pulled out the Birthday Blossoms stamp set from Stampin Up. love that big flower and the Pansy Punch makes it simple to punch them out. 

I stamped the flower three times onto some white card stock and then stamped the leaves three times as well, I colored with Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon, and the leaves are Mossy Meadow. I used my Aqua Painter to color the blossoms and leaves.

The base of the card is white card stock then a layer of Basic Black, I then used another layer of white that I embossed with the Brick Wall EF.

The flowers are mounted onto the embossed piece with dimensionals,  
I used two stacked together for center flower to raise it up more than the two other flowers.
 I then cut out the leaves and tucked them around the flowers.

This set comes with some really nice sentiments but I opted to use the sentiment from the Build a Birthday stamp set on here.
I stamped with Versamark and then used some white embossing powder.
I hand cut the points in the end and curled it a bit. I added the sentiment panel under the flowers using a few dimensionals. I then used a button and twine to embellish the end of the sentiment piece.
The pretty vintage looking button comes from a retired Artisan kit.

Thanks for stopping by today
