Happy Birthday Blooms

I have a friend (waving at you, Rob) who comes around once a week and we have a card making day. I often go through some of my saved sketches and find them to be the easiest way to make a card. Don't have to think too hard!!!

The following card was from an old sketch challenge of Makeesha's and I completely cased this card from the one on her examples (Makeesha's card can be found here). I changed the colours a little (which is completely out of my comfort zone!).

I will go through what I have used (hope I can remember!). I have used all Stampin' Up! supplies except for the ribbon (not sure where that came from). The base card is Purely Pomegranate and the next layer is Basic Gray stamped with the leaf image from Botanical Blooms. I then layered a piece of Kraft (also stamped with leaf image) onto another piece of Purely Pomegranate.

I then two-step stamped the flowers on the main image onto Whisper White cardstock with Rose Red and then Purely Pomegranate. The leaves are stamped in Certainly Celery and then again with Bordering Blue.
