Happy Birthday

 Hi there!  I'm popping in today to share a card that I created using the colors from The Card Concept Challenge #42.
 I'm always in need of more birthday cards either to sell or to give so I used the colors and the roses from the inspiration photo as my guide along with the Papertrey Ink stamp set Graceful Greetings.  I started out with a espresso card base, then a panel of scarlet jewel and then my top panel of cream.  Using the cream colored card stock as my top panel gives this card almost an antique look about it.  I stamped my birthday sentiment in espresso, then cut a strip of scrap and masked out the stamped sentiment.  Once I had my mask in place, I randomly stamped the roses, flowers and stems in scarlet jewel, simply chartreuse, regal rose and pretty in pink.  To finish off my card, I die cut and stamped three roses and two stems and added them at the end of the sentiment and top left corner.  I also added tiny pearls scattered throughout the flowers.
