SSSC#177/PDCC#167/PTIMIM#102 - Happy Birthday

 Hello, hello!!!  I don't know about you but I'm ready for spring.  Looking out my window today and seeing all the fresh falling snow is beautiful but I'm longing for green grass and flowers and that's what inspired my projects today. 
Today is the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #177.  Karen has another fabulous sketch for us to create with and we hope you'll take the time to join in on the fun.
For my card and pillow box birthday set, I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Embroidered Blooms along with the coordinating flower and Turning a New Leaf dies.  I'm also entering this set in The Play Date Cafe Color Challenge #167 and my pillow box in the Papertrey Ink Make-it-Monday Challenge #102.  The colors for The Play Date Cafe challenge are my absolute favorite colors, they're colors I wear and colors I have in my home so I knew I had to join in and create a project for it. 
The closest thing I have to magenta for paper is pink passion so that's what I went with for my flowers and ribbon.  A few details about my card and pillow box: the daffodil delight background panel and Happy Day die-cut piece on the pillow box were randomly stamped with flower images from the EB set and then embossed using a PTI impressions plate for added texture.  The Embroidered Blooms leaves were stamped several times on the white focal panel on my card and then I die-cut and stamped a set of the leaves and cut them apart to add around my pink flower. 
Be sure to visit each of the Sweet Sunday Stampers below for more samples using the SSS sketch!
