Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone! Happy, er, Wednesday! It is SUPER late and I know I am going to regret staying up when I have to get up for work, but I REALLY wanted to do today's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC238! What a FUN sketch!!

For my card, I used Fresh Flowers from Taylored Expressions!! I stamped the flowers twice onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them all with Copic Markers. I then cut out the leaves and flowers and adhered the leaves so that they are *out of the box* and popped up the flowers!! I dusted off my 1 1/4 & 1 3/8 Square Punches (Sheesh it has been AGES since I used those!!) to create the squares!

ALL the cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon and even the Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls in the center of my flowers are from the July Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions!! I ADORE this KI...it is for sure my favorite so far (although I say that each month!!)!

I added some piercing on both my patterned paper panel (Early Bird from Cosmo Cricket) as well as on my Frosted Teal Panel. The sentiment, Happy Birthday, is also from the Fresh Flowers stamp set from Taylored Expressions!!

I added a ribbon knot in the corner, the Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls in the flower centers and then popped everything up with Foam Tape (the same "height" as SU! Dimensionals but WAY more cost effective for those of us that go through dimensionals like water! This is one of my must have stamp "tools").

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!!
