Print Poetry Birthday Wishes

Birthday cards...seems we're always in need of them so when I saw Technostamper's Sketch Challenge 253 this week, that's the direction I went.
The Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack is the source for these papers in Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Very Vanilla and a touch of Summer Starfruit.  I really like the combination; it looks so fresh and spring-y!  

Here's the original sketch from Technostamper: 

It's simple and straightforward!

I used a tiny Gumball Green and Vanilla print for the background.  I ran it through the Big Shot with the Flower Garden Embossing Folder. Some of the white core of the paper showed, which was very cool, so I touched it lightly with a Sanding Block to expose just a tiny bit more!

The green was layered on a Primrose Petals cardstock and then on a Very Vanilla card.

The Birthday Wishes stamp is from the Bring on the Cake set (love that font)!  I gently sponged Summer Starfruit ink onto a Paper Daisy and added a Primrose Petal In Color Dahlia in the center.  (In real life the Dahlia matches the cardstock!  Don't know why it looks so different here...)

I decided to go with the Primrose leaves as they accented the design more than green (a little artistic license perhaps); they were cut with the indispensible Little Leaves Sizzlit in the Big Shot!  If you don't have it, you NEED it!  : )   The entire front was spritzed with the Vanilla Smooch Spritz for a little shimmer.

Beautiful card and I love how you made it a portrait instead of landscape. Thanks for playing our sketch this week at TSSC.
