A Botanical Blooms, Botanical Builder, and Sky is the Limit Birthday Card

While trying to declutter my workroom, I ran across a card that had this very layout.  I thought that the "Botanical Blooms" and "Botanical Builder" Framelits would work well with it and it did!!  I am happy with the way it turned out.  I had a lot of fun making it.  I think, because I was in the mood to play with lots of layers today!

If  you want to make one, please read on for the measurements.

I used Watermelon Wonder for the base of my card. Basic Black was used for the layers and all the panels were done using Whisper White.

After I had cut my Whisper White pieces, I stamped them with the little flower cluster image.  I used Watermelon Wonder ink and stamped off twice before I stamped on the card stock.  I sponged all of the edges and then I taped them on the Basic Black layers.  From there I began the embellishments.  Oh, the words are from the "Sky is the Limit" Sale-a-Bration set.  I told you I was going to be using those words a lot!!  Plus they fit perfectly into that top space.  

The card stock colors used here are Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and in the center of the largest flower I used Lost Lagoon.  I also cut out a couple of little flowers using Pear Pizzazz and cut them up for little leaves for the little flowers.

I used the new "It's my Party" candy dots for the center of the flowers.  The green isn't exact but it blends well with the card stock so I ran with it!

Okay, now the measurements.  For the Basic Black layer cut one of each of the following:
2-1/4" x 4", 2-1/8" x 7/8", 2-1/8" x 1-1/2", and 2-1/2" x 1-3/4".  

For the Whisper White pieces, cut one of each of the following:
2" x 3-3/4", 1-7/8" x 5/8", 1-7/8" x 1-1/4", and 2-1/4" x 1-1/2".

There you go, now have fun playing!  I have always loved this layout and I am hoping to use it again with some other stamp set I have!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
