Flourishes SIX for SIX challenge

BirthdayCelebration-5Hi all and welcome to the 5th Challenge in Flourishes 6th Birthdy Celebration!!!  Today the entire Flourishes Design Team is jumping on the birthday band wagon and helping Flourishes light the candles and roll the music to celebrate SIX fun-filled, creative years! Today's challenge is all about the right recipe for your cards. So, all you need to do is check out our recipe card below and make sure you use all six items. We're calling this challenge -- The SIX for SIX -- six items for six years! 

I used the beautiful Dahlias set that was just recently released.  I thought it would look beautiful with the color inspiration.  The back panel was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and the images were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored them with Copics, added a Sparklet (Kaisercraft) to the required ribbon, and a bit more bling with some rhinestones and glitter.  You can never have too much bling...Am I right?!?!  :)
We'd love to have you play along,  so, without further ado -- the recipe!  
7-26GraphicHOW TO PLAY: Like we said, simply use the six items as your recipe for your card or creation. Make sure to use the sketch and be inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo and then, use the other four items as well when you create. This Birthday Celebration Challenge is just that simple!

I love shabby/vintage, and this card is simply amazing! Wonderful distressed edges, especially on the little banners, and the colors you used on the image have a beautiful faded look that is perfect for this card. I'm pinning this card right now!!!
