Garden Wishes Challenge Combo

 Hello and welcome back! Here's today's card:

One of my favorite things is to create cards for several challenges that are seemingly unrelated. That being said, this design was inspired by the following challenges: Double Trouble, Paper Players (center column - die-cut, texture, birthday), Retro Rubber (stamp set is from 2021), and Sketch Saturday.

For this birthday card, I added the texture by embossing a die-cut circle of vellum with the Dandelions embossing folder. I used the die-cut flowers as a substitute for the offset rectangles in the sketch. The bow is some thick linen twine that was in my stash, probably left over from a Paper Pumpkin kit. Naturally, I had to add some bling!

Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!
