Mojo277 and Fab Friday 10: Happy Day

This card is a combination of two challenges.  The first one is a sketch challenge from Mojo Monday (#277).
The sketch leaves a lot of empty space that can be filled (or not).  I chose to repeat my pattern down the side of the card to fill up some of that empty space.  You could just as easily leave it open or emboss the card front for a subtle texture.
The color choices were made by Fab Friday 10 Color Challenge.  These soft shades would make a great Valentine's card.  They also make a nice birthday card for a friend who is celebrating today.
This stamp set is called Bloomin' Marvelous and it will be available for free tomorrow with your qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration. The images are slightly distressed and there are several wonderful sentiments also.  This one seemed appropriate for my friend's birthday.
I love the whimsical look of these sentiments, with the handwritten and typeset words.  The butterfly was hand cut and popped up on a Dimensional.  The Crumb Cake brads bring in more of the accent color.
For the flower, I first stamped the image and then masked it so the leaves would look like they started behind the petals.  Again, just a repeat of the stamps to give it consistency.  Have a Happy Day!
