Secret Garden Birthday CCMC259

It's Thursday so it must be Create with Connie and Mary Challenge day!  Today we have a fun sketch challenge to work from!


The color scheme is Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and a bit of Calypso Coral.  The Very Vanilla cardstock layer was dry embossed with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.


The two background flower layers were stamped with Crisp Cantaloupe then die cut with the Floral Frames Framelits.  The Daffodil Delight flowers and the leaves were stamped then die cut with their coordinating Secret Garden Framelits.  I used my beautiful new Coastal Cabana Ruffle Trim across the bottom of the flowers... this is the first time I've used this trim and I just love how easy it is to work with and how pretty it looks!


The Happy Birthday greeting is from the Itty Bitty Banners set, colored with markers then stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock and diecut with the coordinating Itty Bitty Banner Framelit.  Tiny Basic Pearls embellish the top flower as well as the greeting!

Here's the CCMC 259 Sketch for this week:
