Happiest of Birthdays

Hello, and welcome back.  The current challenge at Sunday Stamps is a versatile sketch for which I knew immediately what stamp set I wanted to use.

Once more I just had to use the large flower from Birthday Blooms!  Love that flower!  I had a card base covered with the accompanying designer series paper already created and discarded from another project, so adding the banner and the circle with the flower atop was pretty quick after I was done water coloring and fussy cutting the flower.

The card interior was stamped with one of the sentiments from the set, so I wasn't going to add anything to the front other than the banner and flower, but it looked a little bare without one, so I added ribbon to the banner and tied a tag to it stamped with a sentiment from Circle of Spring. Still, I'm not sure I like it - what do you think?

Here's the interior.

Thanks for looking!  As always, your visit and comments are so appreciated!  I added a link above to Sunday Stamps - be sure to use it and check out all the wonderful inspiration!

Beautiful spring card! That flower image is super nice; I have to admit, I haven't gotten it yet. Thanks for joining Sunday Stamps this week.

I think it looks great with the addition of the ribbon and tag. :) Such a bright, fun and sparkly need for a fancy sentiment on the front. A perfect card for this weeks challenge. Thanks so much for joining Sunday Stamps!
