Yellow Flower Birthday Card

Today it's be snowing and sleeting here in Oklahoma. We've even had some thunder and lightning throughout the day. Thunder snow is what they called it. Needless to say it's been a great day to stay inside and make a card inspired by Spring colors. I used patterned paper from the Little Bo Peep Collection by Crate Paper. I've been hoarding this paper for awhile. Green is one of my favorite colors and the shade of green in this collection is just beautiful. Since the papers are pretty busy, I did some zig zag stitching to add subtle detail. The pink card stock is Primrose Petals by Stampin' Up! and I used So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry inks to create the flower. The yellow flower was created using the Secret Garden stamp set and matching framelits. I stamped the flower three times and did some fussing cutting for the layered center. The leaves were cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlits and the scallop circle is by Spellbinders. The Happy Birthday Wishes sentiment is from the Simply Sketched Stampin' Up! hostess stamp set and I used and oval punch and my Cricut for the base oval. The final touch was a Crushed Curry Candy Dot in the center of the flower. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

My Yellow Flower Birthday Card is entered into the following challenges:
