A Garden in Bloom Birthday Card

I have to admit, the tangelo Twist and Pear Pizzazz colors together just give me a happy feeling inside.

I thought I would make a card using a simple flower.  The flowers in the "Garden in Bloom" set have several fun flowers and leaves and other things to play with.  I used the large flower.  I like this stamp set because the stamps have little tabs to help you know which way is up so when you stamp the second part you can line them up easily.

I stamped the flower using Tangelo Twist ink.  Then I inked up the petals image and stamped off once.  I stamped the petals on and this is how they turned out!  I do with I would have colored in the center of the flower.  The stamp set actually has a round image that I bet would fit perfectly in the center of the flower.  Actually, I just checked the set and I think that image is a little larger for the flower center.  I just took a pencil eraser and inked it up and tapped it in the center of the flower.  If I had time I would take another photo but I'm in a rush here, sorry.

The stem was stamped on and then the leaves.  The leaves are also a two step stamping.  I LOVE two step stamping!

The words were done on my computer.  I had printed out a bunch of them a while back and I have been using them as I needed.  The words from the "Wetlands" set will work well there too.  You just need to use the oval punch instead of round.

This was a fun and simple card to make!  Plus it's in such fun colors that I like together!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
