Birthday Greetings- A Fun Color, Sketch and Theme Challenge

Hi Again Stampers! 

This card was created for few of my favorite bi-weekly online challenges, the Fab Friday using their FabFri44 Color Challenge and Hand Stamped Sentiments using their HSSC188 Sketch Challenge and the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Challenge :-)

Again,  I hope you will have a chance to visit and check out all of the wonderful Design projects and other entries- great inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ along with the Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Tangelo Twist card base. 

Ink the sentiment from Wetlands (again, I just love the font used on the sentiments in this set) using Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the XL Oval Punch.   Mount onto another oval punched from Basic Black cardstock using the XL Oval Punch and trim off the lower portion of the oval. 

Using MDS, insert the image from Postage Due into your document, re-size and print out onto Whisper White cardstock (or you could stamp using Basic Black or Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink- I had this image already printed and ready to go from a previous project).  Trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.

Create the little banners from the new Moonlight Designer Series stack and Basic Black cardstock using the Banner Punch,  Tangelo Twist cardstock using the Banner Punch and trimming the edges to create a tiny banner and the Lost Lagoon cardstock (stamped with the Dictionary background stamp using Lost Lagoon Classic Ink and the edge inserted into the Banner Punch to create a longer banner).   Here is a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers with the basic steps for the rolled flowers :-)

Adhere to the back of the Postage Due panel and add the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the sentiment to the lower right hand corner. 
Create the rolled flowers from Blackberry Bliss and Tangelo Twist cardstock (use the 2 3/8” and 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punches- punch the scallop circles, hand cut a wavy spiral from the outside of the scallop circle toward the center, use the retired Crimper Tool to distress a bit, roll up from the outside edge and adhere using Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive or a Hot Glue Gun).
Create the leaves from Mossy Meadow cardstock with the Bird Builder Punch and adhere behind the rolled flowers.   Add the flowers to the card front (again, I used a Hot Glue Gun since I had it on my desk and ready to go) and add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.   
Stamp Sets: Postage Due (MDS Version), Wetlands, Dictionary
Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black
Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Moonlight DSP Stack
Accessories: Big Shot™, Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Punches: Banner, XL Oval, Bird Builder, Scallop Circle- 2 3/8”, 1 ¾”, 1 ¼”, Rhinestones

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a wonderful Wednesday!!
