Birthday Card - Heart 2 Heart Bingo Challenge

I managed to squeeze in a few hours in my craft room yesterday, the first time in far too long. I created a birthday card for the Heart 2 Heart challenge this week, as well as for the current Clean & Simple sketch using the colours at Color Throwdown.

This weeks Heart to Heart challenge is to create a project using products as outlined in the Bingo card below. Use three items found in a row, I chose Flowers / Border Punch / Buttons. The 8 petalled flowers are hand made using paper from the Wings collection and Unforgettable (retired). No punches were used to make the flowers (one was used for the leaves).

Here is the sketch from Clean & Simple :

and here is the color challenge from Color Throwdown, I used CTMH colours - Baby Pink, Vineyard Berry, Black and Juniper:

Supplies - All CTMH except where noted, card size is 5" x 7"

Paper - Designer Paper - Wings, Cherry-O, Unforgettable, Juniper, Black and Vineyard Berry cardstock
Stamp Set - Birthday Script (B1208)
Ink - Black, Juniper
Accessories - Buttons - Pink Assortment, Opaques - licorice
Other - Leaf punch - Martha Stewart, Border punch - EK Success
