Joan's Challenge Friend Birthday

Good Evening Ladies,
We have been having some really bad storms. Our power was out of 11 hours during this time. So it has been a little hard to create. I did now however get another card done for Joan's Challenge Friend Birthday
Here is the link to the challenge...
The requirements this week are:
Use a plaid background.
Use something dimensional.
Use an embossing folder.
Make a friend birthday card.
Use a product that is sold at
So here is my second card...
To create this card I started with the Heartfelt Creations flower stamp set that I purchased at Joan's. I stamped it on Bristol paper and colorized the flower pieces with Prisma pencil and Gamsol.  Each piece was then hand cut. Two of the layers were cut and the petals curled. Two of the layers were left flat. The round floral embossing folder is by Sizzix. The leaf was cut from a spellbinders die set and then stamped with a sentiment. The  sprites are an unmounted stamp that I am not sure on the company. It was stamped on Brisol board and colorized with Spica pens. It was then cut with the same leaf die set and the edges were inked. The little butterfly was cut from a Cheery Lynn Design die set I purchased at Joan's.

Happy Scraps,
