Flower Patch Birthday

Today's card combines 3 challenges: 
a theme with embossing challenge at Seize The Birthday
a sketch challenge at Stampin' Celebration
and a color challenge at Colour Me...!

This one took a little while to make 
as I had to fussy cut all the leaves and stems by hand. 
The stamp set comes with a coordinating die set but it doesn't 
have the die that matches those particular leaves. I could've 
used the stamp and die that matched but I liked this one better.

It's been a while since I made a card with only Stampin' Up!
supplies, so for this one I chose to do just that. I pulled out
some retired supplies and some new ones and played.
I tried the greeting first embossed in white, then Tip Top Taupe
and then black and then embossed in black. That took almost
as long as it did to cut out all the leaves. 

I know exactly who will be receiving this card!
