Embellished Elegance - {SSSC257/RIC#78}

Howdy ho!  I hope you're having a good weekend!  Today is Sunday and you know what that means, it's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
 Since I had these colors out while working on yesterday's card, I decided to use them again to create another card not only for the SSSC but for the Runway Inspired Challenge #78.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Embellished Elegance along with the coordinating dies to create a birthday card (always in need of more).  I started out with a white card base, then a panel of limeade ice which was a mat for a panel of cameo coral.  Lining up my happy die on an angle using white cardstock, I die cut only half of the die and then used an exacto knife and a metal edge ruler, I trimmed away the remaining pieces to give a straight edge running through my die cut word.  After stamping my sentiment, leaves and flowers I backed the stamped panel up with a cameo coral panel and added a layered die cut flower with button and stamped leaves in the upper left corner.

Be sure to check out what each of the Sweet Sunday Stampers has created using this week's sketch:
