I made this card for the Heart 2 Heart challenge this week which was to stamp your background. I used CTMH stamp sets "Love is in the Air" for the flowers and flourishes and "Piece of Cake" for the Happy Birthday sentiment. The paper is from the "Topstitch" line also by CTMH. I stamped the background on colonial white cardstock using Blush and Chocolate ink. I used glossy accents to adhere the clear button (also CTMH) to patterned paper then trimmed around with an xacto knife. I stamped an extra flower in Crystal Blue and attached it with a foam square to give it dimension. I realized after I finished that the blue and pink that coordinate with the paper pack is not what I used - it should have been Baby Pink and Heavenly Blue, but I still think it looks fine! Hope you like my creation!
