From Garden Silhouettes

I would have to say that about 99% of this card is cased from Melissa at Simply Pink. Click here to see her wonderful card. I told her I was going to case her card. I liked it the minute I opened her blog and saw it. I am glad I was able to find some time to copy this card. Isn't it pretty? I added ovals on the sides instead of the word window punch piece. I did that because I wanted the words on the side of the card and I used ovals so it just tied them all in together.

The flower stamp is from the "Garden Silhouettes" set, the Happy Birthday words came from the "Here, Kitty Kitty set both by Stampin' Up! I didn't have the velvet pink ribbon like Melissa used so I added white grosgrain. I did try to use pink organdy but it blended in too well and got lost on the pink. White seemed to stick out better and tie (no pun intended LOL) it all together!!!

The technique here is "Direct to Rubber." I colored directly on the rubber with markers, adding each color separately. Once done I huffed on it so the steam of my breath moistened the ink. It does dry out while you are working on other colors. And I sponged. A fairly simple card!

Stop by Melissa's place and say hello!!
