Flower Filled Birthday Card

Did you ever get stuck on a set that you just can't put down? I'm having a lot of fun with this "Flower Filled" set from Stampin' Up!. I am one that will make card after card with a set and I don't recall getting too sick of any one set I have. I will also stick with a layout too! Not much for venturing out, huh?? LOL This card involved a LOT of cutting of card stock pieces but it is worth it. I just love this layout and if you can find the right stamps to fit in the areas they always turn out cute! I used the 1/2" round circle punch on the darker blue flowers and added Dimensionals behind them. I also popped up the one boot with Dimensionals too. I used the tiny 1/16" hole punch to make the center of the flowers. The butterflies from "Beyond the Basics" was used in the background. I stamped off twice to get a softer look. And of course the "Sincere Salutations" word set. It's a set I'd have to say I use the most often. The primary color in this card is Ruby Red. The coordinating colors are Not Quite Navy and Bordering Blue. The seemed to compliment each other when put with the Ruby Red. The leaves are done in Certainly Celery and the flower centers are punched out in Barely Banana and Summer Sun. Lots of sponging a bit of ribbon and some tape and you've got a card!!! It was a little time consuming but still a fun card to do!

Thank you for looking!

What an awesome card! Makes me want this set even more. I'm trying to save my $$$ for the new catty.....I'm weak tho! If you still had the dimensions of this card I would love to have them. It would make copying your card so much if that's ok..
TFS! and for visiting my blog!
