A Spring Birthday Card

This week's Flourishes TT Challenge "here" is to create a birthday card.  I pulled out one of the March release stamp sets that I was lucky enough to win--Botanical Bookmarks.  The background is another one made with COPICS (see the inspiration here) using Y02, Y21, V12, V17, G02, G07.  I stamped the flowers with VersaFine Black Onyx, brushed them with Shimmer Spritz & cut the piece with Spellbinders Labels Nine.  It's matted with a piece of light yellow cardstock cut with the largest die & then embossed with TH Stripes folder.  The same flowers are stamped on the green textured cardstock using VersaMark.  The diecut piece is attached with foam tape & the gems are colored with Y02.  I've liked cards using parts of a diecut, so decided to do that here.  The greeting is from Flourishes Tag Lines--a super versatile word set.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.  Thanks for stopping by--I love hearing from you.
