Epic Day Sketch Card

It's Thursday so it must be a challenge from Create with Connie and Mary... and it's a very cool sketch this week:  CCMC295

The three panels are a print from the Epic Day Designer Series Paper; they are layered on Calypso Coral cardstock.  The layer of Pool Party Core-dinations cardstock was first dry embossed with the Big Shot and the Stitched Scallop Embossing Folder then the remainder of the panel was embossed with the Polka Dot embossing folder then all lightly sanded. The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock.

The flower consists of four scallop circles punched from a Daffodil print in the same package of designer paper which were brad-ed (is that a word?) together, misted, scrunched then allowed to dry.  They were then layered onto a flower of the same paper that had the edges sponged with Crumb Cake and a little color added also. 

The happy birthday greeting was adhered over a piece of Victorian Crochet Trim.  The large flower was attached with Dimensionals and two pieces of Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon were tucked underneath.  Three tiny flowers were added then centered with tiny Pearls.  Viola!  Done! 

Here is Sketch Challenge CCMC265 from Create with Connie and Mary:
