Stampin' Up Painted Poppies Happy Birthday Card

Today's card features some old product with some new products.  I love to pull out a stamp set that has been around awhile and give it new life.  I have combined Stampin' Up Texture Chic DSP with Stampin' Up Painted Poppies Stamp Set.   

I am playing along with this weeks Paper Players Challenge, below is the sketch.

The card front is a panel of Poppy Parade card stock that I adhered pieces of Stampin' Up Texture Chic DSP and Stampin' Up Distressed Gold Specialty Paper to.  

I stamped flowers from Stampin' Up Painted Poppies Stamp Set on to a piece of Poppy Parade card stock with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled Stampin' Up Heat and Stick Powder onto the stamped image.  I used my Stampin' Up Heat Tool to melt the powder and quickly rubbed it with Stampin' Up Gilded Leafing.  I rubbed the excess off.  I adhered them to the card front using liquid adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.
I die cut the flowers using Stampin' Up Painted Label Die Set using a Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine.  I die cut a piece of the Distressed Gold DSP with Stampin' Up Artistic Die Set.  I cut the leaves and adhered them under the flowers. 

I finished off the front of the card with a sentiment from Stampin' Up Art Gallery Stamp Set using Evening Evergreen ink on a strip of Very Vanilla.  I punched the end off with Stampin' Up Banners Pick A Punch tool.  I adhered a small strip of Stampin' Up Gold Shimmer Ribbon to the back of the banner with a Mini Glue Dot.  I adhered the banner to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to an Evening Evergreen card base.

The inside is a panel of Very Vanilla card base with a sentiment from Stampin' Up Charmed Sentiments using Evening Evergreen ink.  I added a strip of DSP to the bottom.
