A Morning Meadow Birthday

I thought this card was SO pretty when I ran across it either off Google images or from a Pinterest search.  I'm guessing it was from a Pinterest search.  You might be able to see the original card here.  It originated from the Stampin' Connection site and you have to be a demonstrator to view cards on that site.

I didn't change anything on this card but the background. The original card was made using the Natural Ivory card stock.  I used some type of natural card stock that I had in my stash.  I thought it was close enough and pretty enough.  It worked for me and that is what mattered today!  LOL

I used the "Morning Meadow" stamp set to make this card.  The "Happy Birthday" came with the set as well as the branch of little blossoms.  

First I stamped the flowering branch using the Primrose Petals ink pad.  Then I took my blender pen and removed the ink from the leaves and stems.  I added Wild Wasabi to the leaves and Soft Suede to the branches using markers.  I huffed on the image and stamped it on the card stock.  

Next I stamped the large flower on the same card stock (a scrap piece) and punched it out.  I did not clean off my stamp, I just stamped two more flowers on the card stock. 

I stamped the "Happy Birthday on a piece of scrap card stock and trimmed it to fit.  Once again I did not clean my stamp and I stamped the words up the card until the stamp was dry.  Then I set the words and flower in place using Dimensionals.  I taped the piece to a half sheet of Primrose Petals card stock and that was it.  SO simple and VERY quick too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
