Create It Wednesday~Funky Birthday Flower

We're having an artsy celebration week on the Precious Remembrance Shop Blog.  Today it's my turn & I stepped outside my comfort zone to create a fun birthday card.  I used 3 PRS stamp sets (Everyday, Oh So Fun & Fall Colors)--none of which include a flower. 

That didn't stop me as I saw the circle as a bloom, one of the lines as a stem & the triangle as leaves.  I added a little solid triangle to give my bloom more substance. 
The Distress Oxide inks are abandoned coral, cracked pistachio & wilted violet.  I added little white dots to the flower center with a marker for added interest.  The MFT scalloped frame die cut was stacked 6 high with the top layer gray cardstock.  A dark gray ink was used for the sentiment & I stamped the splatters in abandoned coral.  I can't draw simple images, but I did have fun combining stamps to make a flower.  Hope you like it & will check out all the posts this week by my talented teammates.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.
