Celebrate Your Special Day

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having a good weekend. We started the summer off yesterday with swimming, bbq, and eating outside for the first time this year. I haven't had much time in my studio this month so I was just feeling the need to create something! I made a card based on a couple of challenges. 

The layout of my card is based on the sketch challenge at the Seize The Sketch Challenge and the colors are based on this week Color Throwdown Challenge. 

I used the Polka Dot Cover-Up Die-namics to create the background pattern. I used the Linen Background Stamp, stamping Berrylicious Ink on Berrylicious Card Stock. The linen pattern is cut out with the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics. The sentiment is from the Birthday Greeting Stamp Set, stamped in Sweet Tooth Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. 

The flower embellishment is put together with the Upsy-DaisyLeaf-Filled Flourish, and Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics. 

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the  Birthday Greeting Stamp Set. 

Here are the products I used to create my card:
