Happy Birthday Flowers

I had a little time to stamp this morning and I was able to create a card for the Clean and Simple challenge on Splitcoast (create a square card), and I used the colors from this week's color challenge: Basic Gray, Crushed Curry and Always Artichoke.
I've wanted to use this set (For All You Do) for some time, but haven't had a chance to play with it. These challenges were a lot of fun and I have to admit that I LOVE the finished product! :) You wouldn't think this color combination could be bright and springy, but it really is! I love using those little Kisses Love Notes - they are so dainty and delicate, and easy to use - no cutting required (yay!). I pulled the card together with a little swatch of Sweet Pea dsp and some Button Late buttons. I'll be back tomorrow with another card to share - see you then!

Stamps: For All You Do, On Your Birthday
Paper: Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Basic Gray, Sweet Pea dsp pack
Ink: Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry
Accessories: Kisses Love Notes, Button Late designer buttons, 3/4" circle punch

Gorgeous!! The yellow really pops with the grey and white. I love how you did the flowers with one popped up. It's just perfect!
