A Happy Birthday, Everyone, Crazy about You, Petite Petals and Flower Shop Birthday Card

I don't know why I don't use the Bermuda Bay color more.  It's such a beautiful blue!!! I was playing around with some scrap pieces of Bermuda Bay decorative paper and one thing lead to another and the next thing I knew I was layering them with Basic Gray card stock.  SO I had these two layerd strips waiting for an idea to come.  I was looking at my worktable and there were the "happy Birthday" words stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock.  It was stamped crooked so I got another piece of card stock and stamped it straight.  I like how large the words were.  Now I had 3 panels!!  

I had seen a card that had 3 flowers layered.  I didn't have the base flower so I took the flower from the "Crazy about You" set and stamped it using Bermuda Bay ink.  I decided to go with that flower mostly because it had a punch!  I wasn't in the mood to fussy cut today! I used the "Flower Shop" set for the second flower and the "Petite Petals" for the smaller flower in the center.  I set that smaller flower in place using Dimensionals. and  added a crystal rhinestone to the center.  I did color the top two flowers in using a blender pen and the Bermuda Bay ink pad.  

I added a dotted textured background that was layered with Basic Gray and set on the Bermuda Bay card base.  I do like how this card turned out and it's a whole lot prettier in person!

This was a simple card to make.  Layering does take a little time, but it's SO worth it!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
