A Freshly Made Birthday Card

I loved the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and it worked out perfectly with the colors this week at the Color Throwdown Challenge.  

I used Close To My Heart's colors of Smoothie, Blush and Bamboo cardstock for my Color Throwdown Colors.  

The flowers from the Card Word Puzzle (C1494) stamp along with Bamboo ink added a nice subtle random stamping effect.  I felt the cardstock alone was just too stark.  But maybe that is me..... I couldn't resist the urge to stamp something!    My "Happy Birthday" sentiment is stamped with the new 4 My Friend (D1510) set. 

I used a combination of Art Philosophy Cricut flowers and a paper flower from the new Paradise Paper Flowers (Z1710).   The flower is topped off with a wooden button  (Z1387) and that ever popular Baker's Twine Paradise Assortment (Z172)!  

Here is the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the color inspiration from Color Throwdown:
