A Lotus Blossom Birthday

I LOVE the Lotus Blossom stamp set!  I just can't get enough of it.  Today I thought I would go with a yellow lotus blossom.  I didn't do any stamping off on this card.  I used 3 different colors of ink.  For the first image I used Hello Honey.  For the second image I used Crushed Curry, and for the third image I used Daffodil Delight.  I think the colors worked perfectly together.  I was happy with the way it turned out.  

I used Pear Pizzazz for the stem and for the decorative paper.  I used Hello Honey for the scalloped circle and for the other decorative paper.

I was starting out using the Split Coast Stampers sketch #320 but when I went to put the pieces together, I laid them out differently than the sketch and I liked it.

This was such a fun card to make.  I am SO into this new stamp set!  It's too bad it's a Sale-a-Brations and not a regular catalog set.  One can only hope that there will be a fantastic one like this in the upcoming new catalog this spring/summer.  

The words were done on my computer.  Having them printed and ready to go makes for a quicker card too! I set them in place using removable tape.  I will be replacing them with "Happy Mother's Day".  It's such a pretty flower, isn't it???

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
