PPA283 & Seize the Birthday...Sending Birthday Wishes

Just popping in to share the card I made for this week's Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge and Seize the Birthday- Clean and Simple:


Here's my card:

I used one of my all-time favorite floral stamps from SU! called Stippled Blossoms.  For some reason, my little flower came out a bit darker than the big flower.  I didn't notice it until I arranged the flowers on my card. 
Many thanks for visiting my blog today,
