Happy Birthday Wreath

Happy Monday! Hope you had a nice weekend!

This is a card I made last week for two challenges - Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Sketch Challenge (FTTC58) and Color Throwdown's color challenge (CTD84) to use Taken with Teal, Black, Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango.

The wreath, bow and sentiment stamps are all from Flourishes (Seasonal Wreaths and Tag Lines).  The patterned papers are from BoBunny's Kitchen Spice collection.  The wreath was colored with Copic markers (YR00, YR02, YR04, BG0000, BG01 and BG05) and sponged with Versamagic Sea Breeze ink. 

The bow was stamped using Taken with Teal ink, cut out and adhered to the wreath with an American Crafts jeweled brad.  The flowers were white flowers  from Petaloo that I colored with the same Copic Markers.  The corners looked a little bare, so I added some paper piercing.

That's about it! 

Thanks for stopping by!
