Roses and Flowers for a Summer Birthday

I love how the paper and  flowers did all the work for me in this card.  I just stamped the sentiment, design, and label and punched it out. Attached the green mat to the ivory card base. Added the floral  mat with ribbon. On with the stamped label and then the lovely roses. And voila!!

FYI: Unpaid Announcement: Mark's Finest Papers has released some beautiful new stamps this week.  You better check them out here.

Challenges:
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge: Patty asked us to use a 3 dimension flower on our cards. I used some Prima Flowers from my stash.
Wee Memories:  Free for all Challenge
Die Cut Dreams Challenge:  Recipe is  3 Stamps, 3 Flowers and a Bow. My 3 stamps used are the sentiment, label with verse and the design beneath the sentiment.
Oldie but Goodie: Lots of layers and a old stamp.  Lovely Label is over 6 months old. I won it last fall so know it is old enough.
ABC Challenge: W is for wish. My card is full of birthday wishes.
Crafts and Me Challenges: Stamp something. Actually used 3 different stamps.

Supplies:
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers "Happy Pansies" sentiment and triple design
              GKD's "Lovely Labels"
Ink: Memento Rose Bud, Bamboo Leaves
Paper: GKD Green and Ivory CS, BasicGrey "Sweet Threads" DP
Flowers: Prima
Nesties Label 4 Dies
Ribbon from stash

This was an easy card but I really like the results.
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa
