Full Bloom Birthday Card-Funday Friday Challenge

Yep it's Friday and that can only mean that it is Fun-Day Friday Challenge over at Jo's Scrap Shack! Hello and welcome to my blog, today our sponsor this week is StampArt Designs by Kathryne, This weeks challenge: is a sketch:
Isn't that a cool sketch :) This is what I did with it:
A birthday card for one of the girls in the family just not quite sure who will get it yet. I really have to thank Counterfeit Kit challenge for their choice of February kits, that I was able to make the kit I have this month to work with, I just love how this card turned out. I used the digi stamp from StampArt Designs by Katherie, 'Full Bloom'. I encircled that with a cut out from the Kaiser Craft flutterby sheet, gotta love creative memories circle cutting system to get the circle right where I wanted it and the pieces fit together like a puzzle. My cardbase is 6 X 6, I used the Abbey Road "Lucky Me"collection from My Mind's Eye. Added Paper Pizazz Vellum Hearts from Hot of the Press for the mat, seem to soften the the tone of the plaid. The purple trim lace border came from my stash, iVamerica purple rhinestones to the corners and yellow Crystal stickers to the center of the flowers for a little extra bling.
The Happy Birthday sentiment came from 3 Twenty Crafts "Personalize It" stamp set and I used Memento Lulu Lavender ink.
I used that same vellum for a mat on the inside of the card and more cuts from the Kaiser Craft flutterby sheet, the border, the corners which covered up the glue nicely, and the circle sentiment (this is where I got the butterfly circle for the front :)
I used the The Happy Birthday sentiment that came from 3 Twenty Crafts "Personalize It" stamp set and I used Memento Lulu Lavender ink again on the inside. Also hand wrote a little something from the book "Just the Right Words".
