A Betsy's Blossom Birthday

I LOVE this little flower from the Betsy's Blossom set.  And I love this layout too!

I started out the flower using Pink Pirouette, the center flower was stamped in Pretty in Pink and the third flower was stamped in Regal Rose.  I wanted a graduated color scheme going here and I'm thinking I should have gone with some blues instead of the pinks because the Pink Pirouette is a bit too light.  Even in person it seems to be a bit too light.  Oh well, it's done and it is what it is!!  

I did have a little trouble with the words.  They came from the Bring on the Cake set.  I used Basic Black ink and of course it smeared.  I usually use Black StazOn and now and then I use the Basic Black just to refresh my memory of why I don't use it.  

I colored in the words with Pretty in Pink and because I used Basic Black instead of StazOn, the black smudged into the pink area while coloring.  UGH!!!  When will I learn?? LOL

The flowers were set in place with Dimensionals and the rest of the card was just taped layers.  It was a fun and very easy card to make.  I'd make another one but I'll remember to use StazOn.

Thank you for visiting today,
