Sunflower Birthday


Hi All!  Today I challenged myself to see if I could combine more than 2 challenges into one card.  With the help of the Daily DareI actually combined 4 challenges into one card, which is a first for me!
I used this week's awesome Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 65 (MMSC65) which I combined with the Color Challenge on CDAC (cdaccc3) -- to use green, yellow and cream.  
The Digital Tuesday Challenge #70 is to combine images from 2 different companies into one card -- I  combined the "priscillastyles" sunflower single from her Sunflower Set as my focal image (wish the clear embossing with dazzling diamonds was more visible in the photo); and the background paper was created using the Happy Birthday Digital Stamp from KLM Digital Designs & Clear Stamps.  
The Party Time Tuesdays Challenge #10  -- to create a summer birthday card also qualifies.  For me, summer and sunflowers just seem to go together!  What do you think?
Have a great day.  Hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods!
Supplies:  Stamps - "priscillastyles"  - sunflower single from her sunflower set, KLM digital Designs & Clear Stamps - Happy Birthday Digital Stamp; Paper -  SU! daffodil delight, old olive, Hammermill ivory;  Ink -  computer, VersaMark pen, Copic Markers, pencils w/gamsol; Accessories:  Mike's ribbon, clear embossing powder mixed with dazzling diamonds, MS border punch, Spellbinder dies, Sizzix embossing folder, dimensionals, Recollections gold embellishments.
