Birthday Card by Annmarie Colbert

I wanted to share with you a Birthday Card I created. Although I used the sketch for the January sketch challenge I did not use the dare color pink. 

Here is a glimpse of this month's sketch.

 The card base is cut out of craft card stock and measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I then cut a piece of white card stock measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and embossed it with a bubbles embossing folder. I cut two flags out, the top one slightly smaller than the bottom flag and layered them on top of the white cardstock.

To embellish the card I cut one of the Die-Namites Dies Spring Doily and centered it over the flag. I used a large flower and two small roses for the flower cluster and added some of the Die-Namites Dies Floral Corners which I colored with an olive gelato.

To finish off the card I added some natural twine and a Birthday Sentiment.
This month's dare is to use something PINK!
