Birthday Blooms - Case the Designer Challenge #gdp028

Hi! It's 'Case the Designer' Challenge for this weeks Global Design Project #gdp028. We are CASEing (Copy And Selectively Edit) the creation by gorgeous Jess Williams aka The Paper Caper - you really need to see Jess's Blog and her amazing creations.

Jess is the lovliest - I had the privelidge of meeting Jess in person in Melbourne for On Stage in November, just after the announcement of the Artisan Design Team 2016. And Jess is one of the Artisan Design Team Members. So happy for her!!! I love her inspiring projects.
This is Jess's card...
And my replica!!! 
I struggled to move away from Jess's card. I love the layout, the colours and the Calypso Coral bow. The only difference is the stampset that I have used. 
I woke this morning at 5am with an idea to use the 'Birthday Blooms' stampset, and I sat in the peace & quiet of the morning colouring the flower using my Blender Pen. After colouring, I went around the edges of the flower and leaves using Sahara Sand and my Blender Pen - I find this gives a little more depth and shadow to the image.
I also used the 'Everyday Chic Washi Tape' and the Washi Tape is perfect for taping the Vellum cardstock to the front of the card.  Vellum cardstock can be difficult to adhere unless you can glue underneath an embellishment, or using the 'Fine-Tip Glue' underneath a sentiment. 
I love the 'Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon' - you can tie bows to perfection using this gorgeous ribbon.
