Seize the Birthday #281 Nancy Any Color + Green

For the first challenge of April in STB, Nancy would like us to use any color + green.  Come see all of the fantastic cards by our team and join us in our birthday challenge.
I chose PF inks Sunkissed, Mimosa, Mango Sorbet & Fruit Punch.  The greens are Gina K's Jelly Bean & Fresh Asparagus. Gina K's Big Birthday Sentiments
The stamp, die and stencil are from Altenew's,  Floral Whimsey
EF is Altenew Tufted Elegance 3D
PTI's black & white stripe.

If you're not a toppings kinda person, can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes" Birthday!
The choice is yours!

Jolanda Johnstone is our Special Guest Designer for April and May.  

 We also have Melanie H. joining us today as she was the overall winner from our last challenge
  Welcome, ladies! We are really happy to have you.

Thanks for stopping by.

Your orange flowers are so pretty Linda. The black stripes really make them pop. Your embosses background is pretty too.

I do love flowers and make cards with them many times. I am inspired by this one, as it "pops" and is so amazing.

This is stunning, Linda! I really think the black lines tied it together beautifully. Thanks for making my Topping look so incredible!

The flowers are so refreshing and lovely! I love the card design as well - the black strips separating the embossed and solid portions really contrasts well against those charming flowers. Great card, Linda!
