Lovely Birthday, PP337

Hi everyone! I hope you are all enjoying a nice weekend so far. It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players, and this week Claire is our hostess and has a fabulous sketch for us to play along with. I love all the fun layers! 

I stayed very close to the sketch except I thought three flowers looked better than one. And that they needed some leaves. And some berries, lol :) Those were all stamped and die cut, and the the brick background was created with a stencil and my Clarity stencil brushes, which I don't use nearly often enough considering how beautifully they work. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday, and worked perfectly with the space I had to work with.

I'm playing along with the Happy Little Stampers challenge for the first time today, where it's Anything Goes with Dies.

Stamp Sets: You're So Lovely (Hero Arts), You Did It (Technique Tuesday)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Night of Navy (Stampin' Up)
