PS SPARKS - Happy Birthday Flowers

Good morning! Excited to be playing along again with the Paper Smooches SPARKS Design Team - today is the start of a Picture Perfect Challenge!

Here is the fun inspiration for this week:

I changed the birds to flowers, and sort of used the inspiration as a sketch for my card:

I started off with Borders 1 Dies to pencil in the line of the grass, then stamped the flowers and stems from Blossoming Buds. I used my Zig Clean Color Watercolor pens and a waterbrush to color in the scene, stamped my sentiment using Happy Birthday in addition to Blossoming Buds Added a torn edge, then mounted on a soft gray cardbase, adhering along the top, and letting it hang free on the bottom for a whimsical effect.

Make sure and check out what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you - and play along for a chance to win a gift certificate to Paper Smooches!
