Birthday Wishes

This card is created for this week's challenge AT JOAN's GARDENS where the challenge is to use plaid paper for a background, an embossing folder, and something dimensional and to create a birthday card for a friend. 
 For this card I  used a piece of plaid paper by Colorbok matted with coordinating burgundy cardstock.  The dimensional square of pale yellow plain and decorator paper is topped with a large fiber-paper flower, and centered with a flower I made from the PunchBunch petals punch available at Joans Gardens.  The center of the flower also from a punch, and that is topped with stamens that I got from Wild Orchid crafts, and a touch of Platinum Stickles.  The Happy  Birthday sentiment stamp is from Just Rite Crafts Large Fancy Stampset CR 03815 available at Joan's Gardens. The Corner punch squiggle is a Fiskars Lace corner punch (altered). The burgundy mat for the Happy  Birthday sentiment area is embossed with Textured Impressions (Sizzix --SU) Chevron embossing folder and the pearls are colored with markers to match the large paper flower.

  2. Priss, your colors are beautiful, and they coordinate so well with the plaid background. Lovely flower, too. Good work on this week's challenge! :o)
