Coneflower Happy Birthday

I decided to make a card today just for fun.  No design team assignment....just because.  :)

I colored the coneflowers and butterfly with Copics and then used my nesties to cut it out.  I wanted to play along with this week's Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge (SC402) so that was the design for the card.  I added some bling, a ribbon and brought back an old favorite...STICKLES!  I've missed them.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific, Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey (Sweet Threads)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Coneflowers & Butterfly, Feminine Birthday Greetings)
Embellishments/Tools:  Prima Say It In Crystals, Stickles (Icicle), Martha Stewart Border Punch, Ribbon Trends Organdy ribbon, Copics (YG03, YG05, Y11, Y13, Y15, BG15, BG000, R81, R83, R85, C0), Spellbinders (Petite Ovals small & large, Deckled Rectangles small & large, M'Bossabilities Splendid B)
