Sweetie's Sketches July Card Sketch and Keesh's Colour Challenge #10

Hello again. I have a card to share with you following the layout for Sweetie Sketches this month and using Makeesha's colour challenge for this week. I really like these colours, would make lovely Christmas Card colours. The sketch I wasn't so sure on, not something I would usually use but thought it is always good to try something out of your comfort zone. So here are the colours and the sketch.
The card is made with a base of Always Artichoke and then some DSP from Raspberry Tart on the bottom and Mellow Moss card stock on the top which has been stamped with the little flower from Short and Sweet with Versamark. The corners have been rounded and some paper piercing added. A strip of Always Artichoke and Rose Red is across the middle with some faux stitching to follow the sketch. Material flowers have been added to the side with a brad and a scallop circle with the greeting Birthday Wishes. The photo makes the material flower look white, however it is cream in real life. I've also decorated the inside too.
