Happy Birthday- Summer Silhouette Style :-)

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to share another card that I created last night for the CCMC362 Color Challenge at Create with Connie and Mary along with the Seize the Birthday 07/02/15 "Red, White and Blue" Challenge ( Lost Lagoon is sort of blue…but you do not have to do the “topping option” as long as it is a Birthday card) along with the Splitcoaststampers CAS326 Wildflowers Challenge (see details here and gallery here)   :-)
 
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out the Design Team samples as well as their galleries- fabulous inspiration from all!

This was a nother quick, easy card to create :-) :

Ink the floral stems and leaves with Lost Lagoon Classic Ink and stamp onto Crumb Cake cardstock, add the flower tops with Real Red Classic Ink and add a few highlights with the Gel Pen.

Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment using Real Red Classic Ink onto a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto the Real Red card base.

Stamp the lattice border using Real Red Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a scrap piece of Real Red cardstock.

Mount the focal image to the card front and add the lattice border layer.

Create a Real Red cardstock bow using the Bow Builder Punch and adhere the Antique Brad to the center (I remove the brad points and use adhesive to adhere the brad to the bow). 

Mount the bow to the card front to finish off the card.

Not sure if I am pleased with this card- it feels like something is missing,- maybe I will add some Pearls before I mail this one :-)

Stamp Sets: Summer Silhouettes, Butterfly Basics

Ink: Lost Lagoon, Real Red; White Gel Pen

Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Lost Lagoon, Real Red

Accessories: Bow Builder Punch, Antique Brads


Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you all have a marvelous Monday!!

Thanks Ladies for all of your sweet comments- you have made my day! Just to clarify- all of the elements on this card were stamped, I did not use any DSP (it is the border stamp from Summer Silhouettes)... :-)
