Lavender Birthday Wishes

IMGP0255I made this card using my new Gina K “Tropical Flowers” set.

I first inked up the flower stamp with Stampin’ Up!’s Lavender Lace. Then I used a Garden Green marker to ink the stem and a Lovely Lilac marker to 'thump' the flowers. I cut the image out with a Petite Oval Nestability and matted it with a scalloped oval cut from Always Artichoke cardstock. The top part of the card is embossed with a Sizzix folder. Then I scored a double line with my Scor-Pal and stamped the sentiment (from Gina K's “Elegant Post") with Lovely Lilac. Oh, I also sponged the edge of the flower piece with Lavender Lace and the bottom panel with Lovely Lilac.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
