SCS Clean and Simple Challenge - Birthday

This card is for SplitCoastStampers Clean and Simple Challenge #49 - to cut out an element and use on your card.

The flower (and leaves and stem) are from a Gina K set called "A Year of Flowers." I stamped them when my friend Harriet was here last summer. I colored them with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and cut them out. The flower and leaves are mounted on Pop Dots. The layer that the flower is mounted on is cut with a Labels One Nestability and embossed with a Swiss Dots folder. I rounded the corners on the black square behind that layer. The black square is mounted on Pop Dots, also. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Birthday Basics set and is cut with a Spellbinder's tag die set. It's hard to tell in the picture, but I scored a square grid on the card base,and the ribbon is sheer light purple with white dots.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

How did I ever miss this card? It came out beautiful Lynette. I would never have the patience to cut out the image that you did. Awesome card.
