Verve Divas Inspiration Hop: March 2015 - Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone!!!

It's the 5th of the month and time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings!
Our March challenge is B is for Birthday...

Don't be caught short - make a fabulous birthday card to keep in your stash or give away! Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction - just show us your birthday creations!

For my card today, I love the simplicity of the colors and all the white in the inspiration picture and so I used that with the Small Celebrations stamp set from Verve Stamps to create this card. I arranged the flowers on top of the card like the sweet folded balloons in the inspiration pic and then created a little striped "table" like in the picture with ribbons against a gray strip of cardstock:


Card Ingredients:
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and copics
Papers: Whisper White from SU! and Metallic Neutrals from TE
Accessories: Quatrefoil Embossing folder from Cuttlebug, ribbons from stash, corner chomper, Best Glue Ever, Glue dots, foam tape dimensional

Challenge deadline: Thursday, Mar. 19.
Prize: $40 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

I like the glittery/metallic dots in the center of each flower. Looking at the supply list I don't seen enamel dots. Not sure how you got this effect.
