Flourishes is having their 2nd Birthday!

Hello again and happy Friday everyone! Flourishes is having their 2nd Birthday and asking us to create a birthday card to help them celebrate, so I made this card for that special occasion. I grabbed the Sweet Pea set and stamped it twice in Versafine Onyx Black on wc paper, and then embossed it with clear ep. I colored it with Tombows and a wet brush, and added a touch of H2o magenta highlights here and there for added interest. Several of the petals were cut out and popped up on dimensionals for added interest. The dsp is by SU and I think it's Kiwi Kiss. I sponged the edges of the floral image with Old Olive, as well as the sentiment panel and then stamped the sentiment with Elegant Eggplant. The ribbon is from my stash. I made the bow with my Bow-Easy and added a tiny Hero Arts 3mm pearl to the center. The sentiment panel was cut with a Nestabilities tag trio die. The cardstock base is very vanilla.
So happy birthday Flourishes, and thanks for another one of your great, fun challenges!
