Happy Birthday

Hello bloggers, today's card is a quick one as still a bit under the weather and not feeling well.

blue, ribbon, polka dot

This card began as an A6 hammered white card blank.  I cut some blue and white striped card stock to make a mat for the card base.   Next I cut some blue polka dot ribbon and wrapped it around the mat and then adhered it to the card base.  From some blue mirror board, light and dark blue paper I die cut some flowers using Spellbinders'Anemone Flower' die.  These were then shaped using an embossing tool and adhered together to make  3-dimensional  flowers.  In the centers I attached a gem. and then adhered them to the card.  Finally on to the same light blue paper as the flowers were made from I stamped my sentiment using black soot distress ink and stamp from Crafters' Companion Popcorn the Bear 'Happy Birthday' stamp set.  This was then die cut using Spellbinders 'fancy tags two ' die  I then inked through the die with faded jeans distress ink and adhered the sentiment to the card using foam pads.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:-
