Wishing You a Lovely Birthday

Hello again,
     Another dreary day for us here, but lucky for me I have a craft room to escape to, and a husband that doesn't mind if I spend the day in it.
     Lately I've been experimenting with colors and have found that I really like gray leaves with my flowers, that doesn't mean that I won't be using green ever again, but I do really like the effect that gray leaves gives to my cards. With that said I have a few cards that I would like to share. The first is below, the second will be in my next blog.
     This CAS card was fairly simple, I stamped the flowers on Neenah #110 white cardstock. I used
Altenew's Remember This stamp set Shades of Purple mini cubesRock Collection Mini cubes and some black glitter washi tape I picked up at Michael's. For the Sentiment I used Build-a-Flower-Sakura-Blossom also by Altenew.
     Since I don't have the dies for the Remember This set I fussy cut the flowers and stems. I used Recollections #110 card stock for my card cut 2 pieces of washi tape and placed them side by side on the front left edge, off setting them. Then I glued down the stem and flowers, adding just a touch of dimension. I stamped my sentiment added a piece of card and washi tape to the inside and I was done.
     I will be adding this card to these challenges:
