Avant-Garden, Birthday Card, 2017 Sale A Brations

I'm really starting to like this "Avant-Garden" stamp set. At first I thought it was a bit blah.  I do like the images better when I have to fussy cut another flower to lay on top.  This flower needed some depth.  But then again it's fussy cutting and I don't like doing that.  I do if I REALLY have to!!! LOL

This card was found on Pinterest by stampdog.  You can see the original card here.  I did change a few things on it but it's pretty close.  Not that I was going for a total copy or close, I just liked the flower panel the most out of the card.

I changed the color of the ribbon and the color of the base of the card.  I used Whisper White for my base.

I used Pirouette Pink and the "Falling Hearts" embossing folder.

I cut the flower panel to 2-1/4" x 4-1/2".  The Chocolate Chip layer was cut 2-1/2" x 4-3/4".  I used some left over ribbon I had because I didn't have any Mint Macaron ribbon.  I changed the leaf and stem color from Mint Macaron to Pear Pizzazz.  I did have the mint ink but the ribbon I had didn't go with it.  

I did mask the flowers so I could stamp the stems.  I had used this set before with masks so I only had to cut out one more mask, so I didn't whine too much making it!!!  LOL

So, this is how it turned out.  I like it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
