SUO challenge......Happy Birthday

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at the SU-Only Challenge Blog.

The challenge is Black and White with a pop of color.

I pulled out my new Flourish thinlits to make my card. I love these thinlits, they die cut so easily and come out of the dies perfectly, I only used my magnetic platform and the acrylic plates and card stock slid right out with just a small poke of a few of the holes on the back of the die.

I added the flourish to my white piece with a bit of glue.

I used the Botanical Builder dies for my Melon Mambo flowers, the bigger flowers on here are added to the flourish with dimensionals and the two smaller ones are glued directly to the flourish.

The sentiment is from the Rose wonder stamp set.

I went a bit overboard with my rhinestones, just cos, but I love them!!! :)

I added a very small stripe of DSP down the edge of the card for some added interest.

Thanks for stopping by today.
