A You've Got This Wetlands Perpetual Birthday Calendar Birthday Card

WOW!  That was a long title.  I wanted to get all the stamps I used in the title!!! It went clear into tomorrow!!! LOL

I love the look of this flower.  This is another set that I borrowed and I do believe I'm going to have to buy.  This set has a wonderful background stamp that comes with it and I just HAVE to have it!!! There is the new "Watercolor Wash" background stamp that I tried out but I was not as thrilled with it as I was the background that comes with this set.  I will make a card using it in a few days and show you, or you can look it up on the net by Googling the "You've Got This" set by Stampin' Up!.  I always add the company name, then Google can sort through the images easier and find me exactly what I want.  Be sure to click on "Images".  First there's "Web", then "Images", and so on.  Then you get to see lots of photos of cards and projects made.  If you click on an image, it will single it out and enlarge it.  Then to the right of that you can "visit" the page and you will be taken to the creator of that particular item.  As simple as that!!!

Okay, enough about that.  Let's talk about this card.

I used Watermelon Wonder for the base of the card.  Then I added a layer of Basic Black, and on top of that I added the focal piece.

I colored in the flower and stem using a blender pen and the ink pad.  The words are from the "Wetlands" set.  And the are behind the words was done using a stamp from the "Perpetual Birthday Calendar" set.  I stamped off once.  The image was way too dark to just ink and stamp directly.

I tied a ribbon around the edge before I attached the focal piece to the Basic Black card stock piece.  

This was a very fun card to make.  I was SO in the mood to color!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

A very lovely card, will have to look twice at this set.

I really like your balance and it could be done vertically as well, I like choices from the same setup.

Thank You for sharing!!!
