Fresh & Bold: A Flowery Birthday Card

I'm jumping right into my first 2017 entry for card challenges with a fresh and bold birthday card! 
Three card challenges inspired me to make this card.

I love using card sketches and Mojo Monday never disappoints! This week's sketch is a simple yet layered sketch:

The colours I used for this card were inspired by the inspiration photo challenge over at The Card Concept. This photo is clean & fresh with a pop of bright pink and orange. 

And finally, Paper Players has a Clean-and-Simple challenge this week with a twist: Flowers. I love using flowers on my cards. My latest favourite is the Botanical Builder framelits from Stampin Up. There are multiple flowers in this set, with options to be creative and layer the flowers. 

Now to finally show you the end result in combining all three of these challenges...

I added a little texture in the background, as well as a strip of striped designer paper in bright pink. A few of the flowers are popped up to give the card some dimension. Rhinestones are added in the center of each flower for some bling!
