Happy Birthday Wishes

Hello and Welcome to today's post for
The new challenge over there are looking for Spots and Stripes.
This combination really threw me for a while
so I went looking into my stamp collection
to see what I could find. The spots were easy
but finding stripes - lucky I had just recently bought
a stamp from Kaisercraft that had the stripe border above.
Once more this card was nothing like I had planned
but once I found my SU Timeless Textures stamps
this is the direction I went. I love this set
as it is a bit grungy and you can do so much with it.
As you can see I added background bits inking with
SU Rich Razzleberry and Mossy Meadow.
My flowers from SU Petite Petals were die cut
and inked with the Rich Razz.
Leaves are from Marianne Designs 
cut from the MM paper
and sentiment - Avant Garden.
I corner rounded two sides and attached to
Mossy Meadow card stock.
Added a few pearls to finish.  

Pop over and see what the Dragonfly Designers
created and hope you get to join in the Gallery.

Thanks for dropping in.
