Birthday Bloom...

Paper crafting is soooooo addictive... this is my second post for the day. I just couldn't resist making a new card after seeing the challenges at The Paper Players and Freshly made sketches :)

Of course I had to combine these two challenges to create my "Birthday Bloom"

In order to make the flower I cut out semi circle from my card stock n then cut out the petals in each semi circle. I curved them to add a little character n place them one over the other as per the size.
Rest the pattern of leaves n color of the horizontal strip were inspired by color challenge n sketch.

I finally added a brad,some rhinestones same as the color challenge and finally stamped the sentiment.

I have used the color challenge n sketch of the following two challenges

1. Freshly made sketches #73-sketch by Jen B

2. The paper players challenge #132- Color challenge from Ann

Hope u enjoy my card :)
