Birthday Wishes

I wasn't able to get any crafting done yesterday so I thought I would see what I could get
done today.  So far I've only completed one card but it fulfills the requirements for 3
challenges.  I really wanted to give paper piecing a try for the Just Us Girls challenge
and used the sketch from the Deconstructed Sketch and the color combo from

Here's what I ended up with.

I found the floral corner stamp and thought it would work pretty well for the paper piecing
but it was quite a challenge for me.  I can't ell you how many times I stamped it on the 3
different papers I used before settling with what I needed up with. I added a paper flower
 to  the center of the largest one and added gems to all of them.  The other challenge I had 
was  using 5 colors.  Most of the time I only use 3 colors on a project but thought this 
sketch worked  really well for that many.  I'm pleased, overall, with the way it turned out! 
Thanks for taking a look!
