Cheers on Your Birthday!

Wanting to participate in a photo card challenge led me to create this birthday card. I used a sketch challenge for the layout.
The flowers, leaves and stems were stamped and die cut. The oval pieces were also cut from dies. The card was assembled by applying the black and white patterned paper, the black cardstock and the yellow patterned paper onto a white card base. The oval shapes were backed with foam tape for dimension. The flowers, leaves and stems were adhered using foam tape.  The sentiment was cut with a die.
The inside of the card was decorated with three strips of cardstock matching cardstock on the front of the card. Clear Wink of Stella was added to the flowers to give them a sheen.
