Birthday Greetings and a Sketch

Today I made a card that fits two challenges!  If you visit my blog often, you know that I have difficulty making a card that fits more than one challenge.  This card is for the CAS(E) this Sketch and Addicted to CAS challenges.




I really love how this card turned out.




I stamped the large flower (carnation from PTI) in a light tan color, then colored it with Prisma pencils and Copics.  The leaves are a Sizzix die, and the buds are a MB tulip die that I turned into a bud. The large bloom is pop dotted on the white panel and the leaves and buds are adhered to the panel.  The butterflies are a Martha Steward punch and are punched from pink vellum paper and highlighted with a touch of glitter. The sentiment is from PTI.  I pierced a double row of holes in opposing corners of the white panel, then pop dotted the white panel over a white card base.  The leaves and the buds were colored with Copics.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...
