Simon Says.....Happy Birthday!

Here it is, the final card for the 30 day color challenge at The Daily Marker.  
I used Simon Says Stamp clear stamp set Artful Flowers SSS101488, and their Happy Birthday die.  The little birthday word is from W Plus 9 set Hand Lettered Hello.  The die is Spellbinders Curved Borders Two.

On white card stock, I stamped the flowers multiple times, masking as needed, with distress antique linen ink so I could do no-line coloring.  I used Copic markers to color the flowers. 

I layered the panel onto orange card stock.  I decided it needed something more, so I opened the card, and cut the front under the grouping with the dies.  Then I added a panel of vellum, attaching it to the front panel underneath.  I like the look that the vellum bottom gives the card.  It is difficult to photograph how it looks opened with just the vellum on the bottom.

I double cut and layered the Happy slight off so some of the orange shows under the white, then stamped birthday on another piece of vellum and attached that to a scrap of white card stock, and attached under the Happy.  A scattering of clear iridescent sequins finishes off the card.
