A Botanical Builders Birthday Card with Gorgeous Grunge and Sky is the Limit

I found this pretty "Botanical Builders" card on Susan's "Crafty Ducky Doodah" blog.  I liked the card but did change it just a little.  I wanted to make it into a birthday card and my favorite birthday words are from the "Sky is the Limit" set. I used Basic Gray ink for them.  I am still loving the "Gorgeous Grunge" set and I used the dotted splash here with Smoky Slate ink.

I cut out the flower using Pink Pirouette card stock and sponged the edges with Pink Pirouette ink.  I cut out the center piece using Whisper White card stock and sponged the center with Pink Pirouette ink.  Now wishing I would have used Daffodil Delight for a little more contrast.  I put the pieces together and added the rhinestone.

The leaves are cut from Pear Pizzazz card stock. I set the leaves in place with a dot of glue.  Then I added the flower using a Dimensional.  And it was done.  This is a super fun, simple and quick framelit set to play with.  Even without the matching stamp set you can make beautiful flowers.  This card was made with just the framelits.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
