Happy Birthday, Etcetera

Today Connie and Mary have a very interesting sketch for our weekly Thursday Challenge CCMC277!  I chose to use the lovely Etcetera Designer Series Paper for the background panels as well as the focal flower image.

I love the distressed look of some of the papers in this Etcetera package, as well as the muted or worn colors of Old Olive, Night of Navy and Calypso Coral.  The lightest color DSP is a Crisp Cantaloupe print from the Birthday Basics Designer Paper Collection.

The flower was punched out with the Pansy Punch and the Blossom Punch, centered with a medium button tied with double Linen Thread.  The banner was stamped in Calypso Coral with a greeting from the Bring on the Cake set.
