Happy Birthday!

Hello friends! I have a card to share today using some more flower stamps!

I am playing along the Color Throwdown Challenge.

I started with vintage cream card stock.   I am using Altenew Fabulous Florets stamp set and Fabulous Florets die set for the flowers.  I chose to use Wallpaper Art stamp set and Wallpaper Art die set for the leaves.  I stamped the flowers using PTI lilac grace ink and Pinkfresh Studio candy violet and regal kiss inks. For the leafy sprig I chose to use Memento tuxedo black ink.

Once all the images were inked and die cut I focused on the background.  I die cut the background using a Diagonal Stitched Frame.  I used some black acrylic paint mixed with water and an Artist Brush to add some splatters.  I stamped the sentiment using SSS Tiny Words stamp set.  

 I arranged the flowers and leaves using some Nuvo Adhesive and foam tape. I felt the flowers needed something more in the background to ground them and make them pop.  I used my Paper Rose Studio Large Mesh die cut with some Metallic Gold Kraft.  I cut two and used one and a half panels for this card design. 

I added the complete panel to a top folding vintage cream card stock base using foam tapeI finished the card with a few clear sequins  

Here is a list of many of the products I generally
use every time I make a card.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
