Sweet 16

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built!  This week we have a beautiful inspiration photo for you:
Image may contain: plant, tree, outdoor and nature
You can be inspired either by the photo itself or the colors or both!    While I love all those snow covered trees, I decided to go with the color combo.  I added a little bit of silver glitter for some sparkle. 

This card is to celebrate the 16th birthday of a young woman at our church.  I was digging in my bits and pieces stash and found the die cut striped panel.  I thought it made the perfect background; subtle but interesting.  The flowers were all stamped on scrap pieces of white card stock.  And the sentiment was stamped on a scrap of black; it was even that width already.  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week.  And if you need any of the stamps I used (or any for that matter), take advantage of the 10% off your entire order coupon code in my left sidebar.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Daisy Outline, large", "Daisy outline, small" and "Happy Birthday"
Dies: MFT "Bold Stripes Cover Up"; Spellbinders "Butterfly Corner" frame; Verve "Sprightly Sprigs"

I thought this challenge was a little harder and was anxious to see all the different ways the DT interpreted the inspiration board.
