Bright Birthday - Triple Inspired



Today's card is for yesterday's sketch challenge on Splitcoast and was inspired by this total beauty that Diane Gilbert (SCS name: DJLoves2Stamp) created recently for one of Beate's new inspiration challenges. The row of flowers was inspired by the buttons in this cutie by Karen Giron. Thanks, then, to Diane, Beate, and Karen for the inspiration on this one.

Stamps: So Many Scallops, Stitched
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Old Olive
Ink: White craft; Old Olive, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie markers
Accessories: scallop punch, 1/16" punch, slit punch, paper piercer, dimensionals, felt fusion flowers, silver brads

All supplies by Stampin' Up.
