Birthday Wishes in Purple

I was so glad to see Laura & Vera use flowers for the flags in this week's MFT Sketch as I would never have thought of that.  Gave me a chance to use my neglected MFT Peaceful Wildflowers stamps & dies. I colored each flower with Faber-Castell Pitt big brush manganese violet & may green.  

Wink of Stella adds shimmer & they're mounted to a Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangle, leaving the tops unglued.  I used a piece of MFT Spring Green felt for the grass & stamped a sentiment from the same set using Memento Tuxedo Black.  The rectangle is mounted with foam tape to a larger stitched rectangle & a couple lavender pearls finish it off.  

I'm also entering challenges at Seize the Birthday without the topping, SSS Monday & Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
