FTL83 - A Very Happy Birthday

I wanted to play with my newest set Wishing You again today so I decided to use the FTL83 sketch for this week from the CAS Stamping blog. I created the background with flowers from Because of You. I layered the apron lace border punch on top of the scallop punch for added texture which you can see in the close-up photo. I wavered from the sketch a teeny bit by changing the position of one of the 3D flowers. Like yesterday's card, I used teal as the accent colour and love how it stands out against the vanilla, kraft and black. I think I'll have to experiment a little more with bold colour combinations! Sometimes I can get good results working out of my comfort zone. ;)
