Petite Petals meets Gorgeous Grunge Birthday Card

I found this cute an simple card by Margaret at MaKing Papercrafts.  What attracted me to the card, or I should say her card was the "Gorgeous Grunge" lines and the "Petite Petals" flowers.  It was the simplicity of the card.  My card did not turn out as nice as hers. I got carried away with the splatter dots stamp and my flowers are up on top instead of towards the bottom.  And that is because I screwed up the first time so I flipped the cardstock over and stamped the other side.  I had to do it up higher because the lines showed through the cardstock.  UGH!  So I ended up with a hot mess.  And I always share my cards with you, the good, the bad and the ugly!!! LOL

I will carry on like this card is an acceptable card.  Just in case you want to make one the way Margaret did. I used Whisper White card stock for the focal piece and for the base.  I stamped the "Gorgeous Grunge" lines using Pear Pizzazz ink.  I stamped the "Petite Petals" flowers using Elegant Eggplant ink.  I punched them out and set them in place using Dimensionals.  The words are from the "Bloom with Hope" set.  It was a simple card to do but I made it look too busy!  Oh well, I had to cover my mistake and then I just made another one with the splatter image!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I just came upon your cards on Pinterest today and got to your site. I LOVE YOUR STYLE. You have given me great inspiration. I actually like your version best but I did go to Margaret's site too as I like her style too. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Karen
