Seize the Birthday!

My stampin' friend Shana participates in a bunch of stamping challenges. I've been playing along with some of those challenges--as you will know if you've been following my blog. Shana posted a card from a new--to me--challenge: Seize the Birthday! This is an easy-peasy challenge because it's "anything goes." You can create any birthday card. Each week, the blog adds a birthday "topping." This week, it's flowers.

Here's what I came up with.

(Stamp Sets: Petite Petals, Label Love; Ink: Strawberry Slush; Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Strawberry Slush; DSP: Quatrefancy; Accessories: Petite Petal Punch, Artisan Label Punch, Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder)

Yes, I know. Another card in pink. But the Basic Black makes it pop, don't you think? I added some interest and texture with the Quatrefancy DSP and Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.
