Birthday Card ~ Pretty Pastels {1st Post}

I fell in love with these Verve flowers when I first saw this 
July release set and I want to tell you they did not disappoint.
I stamped the first two in the front, masked them off and added the others.
I used my Copics to color them up.
Next I die cut the Verve butterflies and added sequins to their centers.
I hand cut the banner to fit the Verve sentiment.
I used the week 1 Viva la Verve sketch for inspiration.
To finish off my card I scattered a few Verve sequins around.
Are you sensing a theme. lol.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Flowers from the Happy Place stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Butterflies cut using the All Aflutter die set from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment from the Happy Days stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Pastel Sequin Mix from Verve Stamps.
*Design paper from Core'dinations.
*Markers R83, Y15 and YG06.
*Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Memento.

May your day always be filled with love.
