Happy Birthday - PTI Anniversary

Hello, friends!  Happy Saturday!  Today I've got a card that I created for the Papertrey Ink 9 Year Anniversary Celebration.  Each day during the celebration (from Feb. 5-15) Papertrey Ink host a challenge, the first challenge which started yesterday was to create a new project that uses one of the Color Recipe Cards shown on the PTI site.  I chose Betsy Veldman's Color Recipe card with it's beautiful vibrant colors, my favorites.

The card that I created is a one panel birthday card using the PTI stamp sets, Bold Blossoms, Graceful GreetingsWinter Woods, Turning a New Leaf and Beautiful Butterflies.  I had so many ideas in my head for creating cards when I first saw the Bold Blossoms set that Dawn McVey designed, the card I'm sharing today is one of them.
  
I started off my card by first stamping my sentiment in black ink, then I die cut and stamped four of the flowers and some leaves from the Bold Blossoms set adding shading with Copic markers to the flowers.  I also die cut and stamped several of the centers of the flowers and then die cut and stamped my bird (you know everything is better with a bird on it, lol).  After arranging my die cut flowers, leaves and bird around my sentiment, I then knew where I wanted to stamp my orange flowers and Turning a New Leaf stems.  I did add a touch of tropical teal to my card which isn't on the card recipe but felt was needed in my design.  I stamped a little butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies set at the top of my card and once all my stamping was done I adhered everything in place.  As a finishing touch, I added three iridescent sequins.
Thanks so much for your visit!
