Seize the Birthday Challenge Week #1

Hello & Happy Thursday!

I was so excited for this day to come because of Lesley's Seize the Birthday Challenge to start! I'm terrible with keeping up with having cards made for people's birthday's anymore so this challenge is a huge blessing!
Today is the first sketch and it is to make a feminine birthday card with this sketch:

After seeing the sketch I decided to pull out this old SU set called Watercolor Garden. This is probably my oldest & most loved set....and one I will never part with! I looked on my paper rack and found this pack of springy colored paper and the rest just came easily! 
Hope you like!

Seize the Birthday Card:

Stamps: Watercolor Garden, Sentiment from Amuse
Ink: Peach Parfait, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Memento Black
Cardstock: Peach Parfait, Wild Wasabi, Just Eat Cake DSP, Neenah White
Accessories: Labels Framelits, Baja Breeze Taffeta, Orange Rhinestones, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape

Well, that is all for today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

I don't think I've ever seen this stamp set, but I'd be hanging onto it as well! I love the color scheme you chose and the papers are perfect!
I know Fluffy's birthday will be a difficult day for you, but be glad you were able to enjoy him as long as you did! I miss all 3 of mine every day too :)
