Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone,

Hey!! Welcome back!!!
It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Creations Challenges. This challenge will end on April 24, so you have plenty of time to get creative and enter your project. 
The sponsor for this challenge is Fred She Said and the winner will receive a $10.00 gift certificate.

I seem to like/use flower/images and in keeping with my tendency (LOL)

I am using Doodled Floral Corner

This is a great digi and I just love it. Perfect for so many different occasions.
I chose to make this one a birthday card.

In making this card I printed two of the designs. I used the square design and I sized it at 5".
On the first print, I colored the design flowers and leaves and then fussy cut the design out. One the second print, I colored just the flowers and fussy cut just those flowers. Next, I shaped the flowers using a paper shaper (used the large ball). I just wanted to give the flowers some dimension. Then I attached the cut flowers over the same size flowers on the square design. 

Here is a view that shows those flowers and what they look like after I added the shaped flowers.

Even though this is spring, I chose a black background panel to mount the design onto. 
(Hope this doesn't look too much like Halloween, 
based on the orange flowers and that black background.)
These flowers just remind me of spring.

Next, I chose a light green panel to place under the black panel and the main card is an orange tone to go with the colors in the flowers.

I used a Happy Birthday die (cheap die) and used a beautiful gold heavyweight paper 
to cut that sentiment. 

This was a fun card to make and I hope it has given you some ideas.

Don't forget, the latest challenge has started over at Crafty Creations.
I hope you will enter a project. 
The theme is always Anything Goes.

I love the bright orange against the black. Not Halloweeny at all!
