Birthday Flowers



Here's a card for the SCS (SC229) Sketch this week using colors from Lauren's (MTTC02) My Time To Color Challenge.

The punched butterflies and pomegranate mat behind the main image are up on foam tape. The main image is a stamp from my TE Fresh Flowers set. The flower was stamped twice, colored, and layered together with foam tape. Yellow stickles were added to the outsides of the petals and a rose-colored dew drop was glued to the center of the flower.

Here's a close-up:
