Color Dare #460 "Crazy 8" - Happy Birthday

This is my DT Card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #460 "Crazy 8" challenge.  All you have to do is choose 4 of the outside block colors and you are welcome to use any products as long as they are the closest match. After choosing your 4 Blocks, if you want to use additional blocks it's your choice as long as you use "Only" blocks included on the Color Palette above.  

The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #436 was perfect for many of the color blocks from Crazy 8 palette and great for a mini slimline card.  The sketch was already a beautiful card so other than using similar cuts the sketch was almost duplicated.  Using this sketch was a perfect choice to use in the Cut It Up Challenge #233 "Use a Sketch of Your Choice" and make sure you include a die (this was not a problem with this sketch for sure).     

Went through the Wood Grain CTMH Paperpack and found a wood grain that had almond and/or pebble color.  Proceeded to cut many flowers, leaves and fern using various dies.  The sentiment panels were cut and Happy Birthday Sentiment stamped with black ink.  The flowers were layered and adhered with glue and thin foam tape for dimension. Fern and leaves and additional little flowers were added around the cluster of the flowers.  

Used some of the left over cuts of flowers, leaves and ferns for the bottom corner of the inside of the card.
