Lovely Lattice, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

It was a difficult decision to figure out which Sale-a-Bration set I was going to play with today.  It will be the last time I will be posting images from them on here since they retire tomorrow.  I was looking through the ton of cards I had saved from Pinterest and I thought this one looked pretty.  I LOVE the Coastal Cabana color and I wish that Stampin' Up! would come out with them in the Blends. I miss that color.  You can see the original card here.  My card is a little different but it's okay, I like how it looks.

This is an easy card to make though it did take a little time to color.

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Bermuda Bay card stock.  It was cut on the 8-1/2" side.  This card opens at the bottom.

The Whisper White piece was cut 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  I stamped the image from the "Lovely Lattice" set using black Memento ink.  I colored the leaves in using Granny Apple Green Blends markers.  I colored the flowers in using a blender pen and the Bermuda Bay marker.  The centers of the flowers were colored in using the Daffodil Delight marker. That was the part that took the longest.  It really didn't take all that long to color and I was in the mood to color so I think it went quickly.  

After coloring, I added the words from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set using black Memento ink.

I had a piece of the Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green ribbon from a package of card stock (as a gift).  It came in handy.  I wrapped the ribbon around the top of the Whisper White piece and tied a bow.  I stuck a few tiny glue dots around to hold it in place.

I added Dimensionals to the back and set it in place on the card base. I like how the card lines up with the top edge and not centered all around.  I didn't pay attention when I was cutting it and I'm thinking that length should be about 3/8" longer.  So the card stock should be cut 3-1/2" x 5-1/8".  I like this layout and I think I may try using it again on another image. Hopefully in the near future!

I do like how the card turned out and it was fun to just sit and color for a little while.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
