Happy Birthday with 3 Embellishments

Hello Crafty Friends,
 
Welcome back and thank you for visiting!
 
Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas, so here is another opportunity for you to share your newest creation.
 
The Challenge...Birthday with 3 Embellishments
3 is still the number I keep thinking of after having a FABULOUS blogoversary celebration this past weekend. Just a reminder...the winners will be announced on Thursday.
 
Here is my Design Team project...
I have been using pink more often on my projects. Years ago it use to be my favorite color (probably in the 80's when Pretty in Pink was a hit).  Now-a-days I love brown, but those 2 colors do look awesome together.
I started with this sketch from Seize the Birthday, but rotated the center square to make a rhombus.
 
I used 3 pink gems as my embellishments. The vase and flowers have multiple layers starting with pale green, light pink, then dark pink. I mixed the petal colors to create a variety.
Materials:
Kathy Davis paper
pink and white card stock
Kate's ABCs ~ flowers with vase (p. 54) cut at 2 1/2"
Trendy Twine
pink gems
Happy Birthday stamp
pink ink
 
Other Challenges:
 
Can't wait to see what you share at Die Cuttin' Diva this week! The Design Team projects are filled with lots of birthday wishes!

Stay Creative,
Georgiana
