Viva la Birthday

Hey everyone! Today's card uses this week's Viva la Verve sketch with a {twist} of blue, green and a neutral.



I pulled out the Wishful Elegance set and stamped some tone on tone backgrounds in Baja Breeze and Kraft (using Close to Cocoa ink, then added some white mats to make the layers pop. The sentiment is stamped in Baja Breeze on a white deckled rectangle and sponged with Baja Breeze ink. I stamped two of the flowers from the set on Baja Breeze cardstock, then cut out and layered on top of each other, with a great big rhinestone in the center. I tweaked the layers in the sketch a bit to accommodate my sentiment, and then added some pearl dew drops below the sentiment panel. I finished off with an Always Artichoke background embossed with the Distressed Lines cuttlebug folder, and then topped it off with a white taffet a ribbon. Okay, that's it for now. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Paper: Baja Breeze, Kraft, Always Artichoke (SU!)
