Stampin' Up! Ornate Birthday for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge. I can't wait to see what the other team members created. Hop along with us at the bottom of my post.

Here's our sketch...
Image may contain: text

and here is how I interpreted it. 

My card base is Mango Melody. On the card front, I matted a piece of Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper from the Brights pack.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the flower image from the Ornate Styles Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers with Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Terracotta Tile. I used what Blends I had and then some Stamp N Write Markers. The leaves I colored with Light and Dark Old Olive Blends. I cut out the image and adhered it to the card front with Dimensionals.

Using the using the Ornate Flourish Dies, I cut the four doodads out of Champagne Foil, stuck them under the image and adhered the tips with glue dots. Then I stamped the sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from Positive Thoughts and one from Special Someone in Terracotta Tile. I stamped the leaf image 3rd generation in Daffodil Delight. I punched the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. Boy, am I going to miss that punch if it retires the end of May! I adhered the panel to the card base with liquid glue.

Measurements and a partial product list can be found at the bottom of my post, along with any challenges I might have entered.
