Birthday Card for Mom ~ CCMC551, CTC218, PP431

Hello stampers!  Today's card shows off a lovely color palette brought to you by the latest color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  For my card layout, I played along with Caseing The Catty Challenge #218.  I cased a card from the center section of the newest Sale-a-bration flyer.  I'm also playing along with the Paper Players spring fever challenge #431.

No photo description available.

It was my mom's birthday recently so this card went to her.  She loves flowers, so this was perfect for her!  
If you look closely, the Fresh Fig panel has a fun technique applied to it.  I inked up the flat side of the Country Floral TIEF with Fresh Fig ink and laid my card stock on it.  When I ran it through the big shot, the ink transfered to the depressed areas, making the background a little darker than the raised portions of the paper.  It really is a lovely look and gives such dimension!

Here's a picture of the card I cased.

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Needle and Thread, Beautiful Day
Ink: Fresh Fig, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink
Paper: Very Vanilla, Fresh Fig, Mossy Meadow
Accessories: Needlepoint elements framelits, Gold faceted gems, Country Floral TIEF

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
