Happy Birthday to You Card

Hi! Hope everyone is having a FUN-tastic summer.
I came across a blog over the weekend called 'Stuck On U Sketches'. 
They have fabulous challenges going on and have an inaugural card challenge.
So, thought I'd joined in their first ever card sketch challenge. 
Olympics opening ceremony and games 
got along the way in my card making. 
Finally, today I was able to make a birthday card 
for a friend whose birthday is coming up. 

This is the SOUS Card sketch I used.

And here's my card...

Happy Birthday to You

I used Graphic 45 Little Darling Collections - Heaven Sent.

I misted the lace with Tattered Angels Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mist.

Painted the die cut flourishes with Citrus Adirondack Brights Acrylic Paint 
to brighten a bit and match it with the the flourishes on the pattern paper.

I got the flower from a local shop..added die cut leaves on it.
Stamp my sentiments using Teddy Bo & Co stamp set which is a freebie from
Simply Cards & Papercrafts magazine.

Fussy cut some butterflies and 
added Kaisercraft rhinestones on it.
My card's done.

I hope you like it.
