A Razzleberry and Plum Birthday Card

I've been working on customer orders more than challenges this week, but I managed to work this card in with the SC248 sketch challenge anyway! I tweaked the layout just a tad bit, but I like it better this way. I used some white PTI, Razzleberry, Olive, Pale Plum, and Cottage Wall dsp for this one. I think this color combo is my current favorite because I seem to reach for it more than any other lately. The border was created with a MS punch, and the squares were done with Nestabilities. The flowers were punched with a Carl punch and a SU button was sewn on with white embroidery floss. I pierced the larger sentiment panel around the edges, stamped it with a Hero Arts stamp in Razzleberry, and added 3 Kaiser blush pearls. A touch of SU Razzleberry ribbon and this was done in no time!
Thanks for stopping by and do have yourselves a wonderful Friday!!
