Sweet Sunday.....Blooming Birthday

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

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

I really like this DSP from Stampin Up called Gold Soiree so I pulled out a couple of pieces to use on this card. The paper has a really nice sheen and feel to it, something you can not see in the pic.
The base of my card is garden Green card stock and then a layer of white and then a piece of the DSP.
The next layer is more of the same DSP matted with some Calypso Coral.

The sentiment on here is stamped with black onto whisper white card stock. It comes from the Flower Patch stamp set. I used some flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set. I stamped with Coral a few times, to get the light and dark colors. I used the matching punch to punch them out and then I layered them together and glued. I cut a leaf with one of the Secret Garden framelits using garden Green and added it to the image panel and then arranged my flowers around it. .
The main panel is layered with both coral and garden green and added to the card with dimensionals.
I was digging through my stash of stuff and came across these enamel leaf pins I have had forever and added them to the flower arrangement. I added some gold sticky back pearls to the flower centers and to the Coral layer and also under the sentiment.

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

Thanks for stopping by today
