Danielle's Corner Office: Birthday Card from sketch

Birthday Card from sketch

I don't usually participate in the sketch challenges. For some reason following a sketch is harder for me than just moving the elements I've chosen around to get the look I like best. That said, I decided to do a card based on a sketch yesterday and this is the result. The card blank is 5"x7". The colored papers are K & Co., the black and white (flower) are DCWV- La Creme Stack. The button and floss are from my sewing supplies. I used a Martha Stewart border punch. The celebrate stamp is from a set by Inkadinkadoo, and the inside sentiment is an old wooden stamp (no manufacturer listed any where). The flower was cut using Sizzex dies-there are three layers, the scalloped circle was cut with the Cricut using Mini Monograms, and the inside marquee shapes were cut with Nestabilities. I used foam tape to pop the scalloped circle and all the layers of the flower. I did some inking on the flower, the scalloped circle and the inside. I feel like the papers are a little too similar and wish I had used papers with more contrast, but overall I like the card.
The challenges I am entering with this card are:
1. Got Sketch?-  sketch
2. A Spoon Full of Sugar-  Birthday Wishes
