Fabulous Florets Birthday Card

I just can't seem to get enough of this set.  I had the flower stamped and the leaves/stem stamped and it was just sitting on my worktable.  So I thought I'd trow a card together with these two pieces.  I got the flower cut out and the stem part cut to size.  I was really leaning towards making a basically white card.  I made the layers for the flower and on the center one I took my Melon Mambo marker and colored the edge so it had just a hint of color showing.  It's a real soft subtle touch and I'm going to have to try that again sometime.

I didn't want to use the embossing folders.  I just felt I needed a break from them for a bit.  I do love to use them but I've been using them so much that I thought I would just leave it plain.  Well, plain was just too blah so I got out the "Lattice" die and after running my card stock through the Xyron (to put sticky on the back of it for easier mounting) I set it in place on top of the card front.  I set the layered piece on and used the "happy birthday" from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set and it was done!!!  I wasn't sure I was going to like the Lattice on the background because it didn't cover the whole card front but now that I look at it more I do like it.  If it had covered the whole front then I wouldn't have been able to just stamp words on, I would have had to do it with layers.

All in all it was a very fun card to make and I can see myself making more in the future.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
