Beautiful Birthday Flowers - Stampin' Up! Jar of Love - Fab Friday 106

 And here we are back at Friday again and to make it even better it's a new Fab Friday challenge!  We have a really fun set of colors for you to create with this time.  When I first saw the color palette I really liked the colors together but then I started to think what am I going to do with these??  And,  I don't know if I can pull this off!

  I sat down and pulled out the ink pads and was thinking maybe a tropical fish inspired card but then the sweet little flowers in the Jar of Love set caught my eye.  I've been trying to use more Annual Catalog sets as they've been quite neglected since the Holiday catalog was released in September and then the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration products in January.  Jar of Love is certainly a go to in my stamp set collection.  Birthday cards are at the top of my list so I got working!

  The card base is thick Whisper White, then another layer of Whisper White embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  From my scraps I pulled yet another piece of Whisper White and cut out a circle slightly off center.

  More Whisper White scraps were used to make the flowers which I stamped in all of the challenge colors (except for Bermuda Bay), layering on different base colors and different highlighting colors.  The Bermuda Bay was used for the sprigs of greenery.  After stamping them all out I cut them out with the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits.

  Next came the layering and arranging of the flowers on the edge of the circle cut out.  Several of the flowers are popped up with dimensionals for added interest.

  I used the classic "Happy Birthday Wishes" sentiment from the Sale-a-Bration set Avant Garden and then popped the flower panel onto the card front with a few more dimensionals.

  I hope you'll join in on this Fab Friday Challenge fun and share with us your awesome creation!  Check out the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration using our challenge colors!
