Paint Play, Better Together, Birthday Card

I bought the "Paint Play" stamp set because I thought it was cute but I hadn't used it yet. Not even one image in the set!  WOW!!! So today I thought I would take a look around Pinterest and see what I could find that looked like fun.  And it was fun to make.  Lots of colors to play with.  Something I don't usually do because I'm too lazy to clean my stamp and use more colors!!  But today I thought I'd give it a try, colors and all!!! You can see the original here.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Flirty Flamingo. A color I haven't used much of and I could tell by the amount of card stock I still have on hand.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Gray card stock.  And the focal piece is 3-3/4" x 5".  

I stamped off on the larger round scribble circles using Flirty Flamingo. Then I stamped right from the pad using the swirl image.  Next I added the larger Pear Pizzazz leaves. Then the Daffodil Delight flowers.  I used Fresh Fig on the medium scribble circles and I used Flirty Flamingo on the smaller circle clusters.  I also used Pear Pizzazz on the center of the yellow flowers. I'm not a big fan of green centers on flowers but I was just copying the card.

The words are from the "Better Together" set and Basic Gray ink was used to stamp them.  I did make a few little changes due to the orientation of some of my flowers but all in all it's pretty darn close.  I like the looks of it and now to go clean my stamps!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

This is a beautiful card. I love the design and placement of the flowers. I have a new set of flowers (not sure of the name) and dies that I have not used. This is the perfect inspiration for me. Thanks so much. Enjoy your day!
