They say its your birthday!

I made this card for a weekend sketch challenge 25 on Beate's blog. The challenge was to make a z fold card with a rectangle panel on the front.

The card base is Chocolate Chip scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 . The inside panel is from the So Saffron Designer Series Prints and the right panel is from the Rose Red Designer Series Prints. Both panels were punched with the ticket corner punch and stamped on the edges with the argyle stamp in All in a Row. (two of my faves, as you all know :) )

The main panel is stamped with a sentiment from It's Your Birthday in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla. That was matted on So Saffron and then Chocolate Chip.

I stamped the flower image from a Level 2 Hostess stamp set, In the Spotlight, in Rose Red and twice in Almost Amethyst. I punched those out with the Five Petal Punch...which fits it perfectly. By the way, all of the stamps in this set are designed to coordinate with our awesome! I used the 1/16" Hand Held Punch to punch the centers of the flowers and then placed brads in the centers...easy peasy!
I also sponged all of the edges, inside and out, in Chocolate Chip.

Here is a view from above the card to give you a better idea of the fold:
Until later....
Happy Stampin'!!!
