DD#100....Sweet Birthday

Happy Sunday!

I wanted to quickly post this card I created last night.  I am playing along with Dynamic Duos last colour combo! I am so sad to see this wonderful challenge close.  I have certainly become a better card maker when I pushed myself to enter these card challenges.  Ironically, I was waiting for the next Design Team call because I wanted to submit a card for consideration, and when I saw the post about "announcement" - I thought that was it!  :(

For my card, I began with Whisper White card base, and used a mixture of DSP's from SU! Just Add Cake and Comfort Café.  I do not Smokey Slate card stock, but I substituted with something similar from my stash.  I die-cut the ovals with the Creative Memories Ovals Set.  The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Small Fancy Labels 18, and was stamped in Basic Black ink.  A collection of small flowers and a pretty bow added the perfect amount of glam to the card.
I am also adding this card to the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday - "Anything Goes" Birthday
Inspired by Stamping - April Customer Gallery Contest
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
