Springtime birthday celebration

This card is based on the sketch for week 8 on Create 4 fun:

I've used a Penny Black stamp from the Critters selection for Penny Black week 89: 'colour combo - pink, green and yellow'.

The card is also for:

Loonies stampers 81
: 'spring moss, smokey shadow, sweet blush'
Peachy keen 23: green and yellow, 3D element (the flowers/pearls, butterflies), stamped image
Copic colour 53: YG03 yellow green, Y17 golden yellow, C-7 cool gray No. 7 (I used No. 5) - the colours look paler on my image because the base card is quite shiny
Charisma cardz 8: 'birthday card with a twist - must include a candle'
Raise the bar 7: 'three's company' - 3 embellishments etc - butterflies, flowers, pearls, mice, designer papers
Flutter by Wednesday 98: 'open - include butterfly, fairy or angel'
Crazy amigo: 'insects'
Created by hand: 'things that fly'
Another for Belli 85: 'butterflies or dragonflies to celebrate the coming of spring'
Another for Inky impressions 30: 'think spring'
Another for CDM: 'flowers'
Another for Flourishes Timeless 55: 'flowers'
Another for Jacksonbelle: 'anything with flowers'
Another for Corrosive 52: 'wings'

Papers are Craft creations and Basic Grey, pearls are Prima.

Roses are red

I've based this card on Sweet stop 44 sketch, which also calls for flowers:

It's also for:

: R is for red
Colour create 39: 'black, red and off white'
Another one for Tanda teaser 135: 'riots of petals'
ClearlyiStamp 8: 'it's hip to be square'
Another for Practical scrappers: 'stamps'
Pals paper arts 31: 'an inspiration challenge' - I concentrated on the four squares aspect:

Once again, I used the Magenta roses stamp with versamark and metallic red embossing powder.

Pink roses

This card is for sketch 52 on Card Patterns:

It's unusual, in that it asks for two images - so I used two of the four panels on a Magenta rose stamp that I had for Christmas. This is just right for Pollycraft 34: 'double up' - use two images.

It's also for:

40: 'a tag, ticket or a label'
Another for There she goes 43: 'birthday sparkles' - lots of glitter edging on the birthday tag
Another for Penny's challenges: 'birthday'
Gingersnap colour challenge GC43: 'three colours you love' - the combo of black, white and hot pink is one of my favourites
Twisted Thursday 45: 'hot pink'
Theme Thursday: 'flourish'
Another for Sophisti-Cat 23: 'embossing'
The treehouse 38:'bling it on' - the birthday tag is very glittered
Tanda teaser 135: 'riots of petals'
Pixie dust studio 10: 'think birthday'

Papers are DCWV and the images were stamped with versamark and heat embossed with hot pink powder.
