The Card Concept Challenge #6 - Create a Birthday Card

My gosh, the posting hour for The Card Concept Challenge has snuck (is there such a word!!) up on me!! Furiously four finger typing.
Although the only requirement for this challenge is to create a birthday card, how can you not be inspired by this gorgeous image, such lovely colours. The design team have created fabulous cards to inspire you. Choose a style and start stamping, cutting, sticking and linking!! :-)


I haven't deviated much from what you see in the image. I loved the flowers and the lovely design on the cake stand so have vaguely mirrored those. 
I have embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder. Stamped and diecut a sentiment from Verve. Cut out some felt leaves, punched the large flower with PTI dies, and the small flowers with an old Carl punch. Resin flowers, a doily and twine complete the card.



Addition:- I have also linked this card to Seize the Birthday.

Must post.
Have fun creating over the next two weeks.

I love how you have used just a portion of the doily Karen...this is beautiful. The flowers really look like the ones on the inspiration photo of the cake...and yes, I do think "snuck" is a real word...at least at my house it is!
