SSSC157 - Sunflower Birthday

It's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!
Karen has another great sketch for all of us to create with for the next two weeks, she knows exactly how much all of us Sweet Sunday Stampers love a good tilted panel when it comes to making cards, lol.  All kidding aside, even though a tilted panel is a bit of a struggle, that's what a challenge is all about...trying something you might not normally do.  So even though I fought to straighten out my main panel and tape it down, I didn't!  I did however find myself tilting my camera while taking pictures for some reason lol.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Simple Sunflower and Think Big Favorites #12.  I started out with a chocolate chip card base, added a white panel and then an embossed panel of designer paper.  I stamped my happy birthday sentiment and sunflowers and added the single die cut sunflower using foam tape.  My card felt a little off balanced so I added the large brown button on the left above the banners to off set it a bit.
To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!
