Birthday Thank You

Hi all and welcome to the 5th Challenge in Flourishes..... BirthdayCelebration-5

Today the entire Flourishes Design Team is jumping on the birthday band wagon and helping Flourishes light the candles and roll the music to celebrate SIX fun-filled, creative years! Today's challenge is all about the right recipe for your cards. So, all you need to do is check out our recipe card below and make sure you use all six items. We're calling this challenge -- The SIX for SIX -- six items for six years! So, without further ado -- the recipe! 7-26Graphic

HOW TO PLAY: Like we said, simply use the six items as your recipe for your card or creation. Make sure to use the sketch and be inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo and then, use the other four items as well when you create. This Birthday Celebration Challenge is just that simple! When you are done with your card, don't forget to link up your creation  using the Inlinkz widget! For Birthday Celebration Challenge #5, enter as many times as you like. If you upload to Splitcoaststampers, use the keyword FLLCBC5. You have until 11:59 PM CST on July 31st to enter! Winners will be announced Saturday, August 3rd and winners will receive a goody bag from Flourishes valued at $30! There’s a whole bunch of fun scheduled for Flourishes 6th Birthday — if you want a peek at all the challenges, just click HERE to see!

My creation is a birthday thank you card. I still as an adult send out thank you cards for all the gifts I receive on my birthday. ;-)  I grabbed one of my favorite stamp sets Thank You. My flowers are stamped onto Classic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Colored with Copic collections:

I added some textures with the swiss dots to my background panel. My ribbon tabs are using three color made easy collections Pistachio Iced Lime, Tiger Lily Peach and Basic White.

My cardstock base is from two Color Made Easy Collections Pistachio and Terra Cotta. Added two jewels to the flowers centers and popped my panel up on dimensionals. Voila!
Be sure to check out the creations from the Design Team for this Birthday celebration!
