Amazing Life, Beautiful Bouquet, Swirly Scribbles, Birthday Card

Yesterday I made a card using the "Amazing Life" set. I had to fussy cut the flowers and I whined a little!  And there were only two yesterday. But today I didn't whine because I was so loving those little flowers that I didn't mind the cutting.  Plus it's amazing how much you can cut when you have the tv on!!!  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of it is a piece of Old Olive cut 4" x 5-1/4".  I cut a piece of Whisper White 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" for my focal piece. This card opens at the bottom.  

I cut a 1" x 5-1/8" strip of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Share What You Love" 12" x 12" paper pack.  I taped it to the Whisper White piece, about 1/2" up from the bottom of the card.

Next I die cut two Old Olive scribble circles from the "Swirly Scribbles" die cut set.  I glued the two together and glued it to the card front.

Then I stamped the words from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set using black Memento ink.

I stamped a bunch of flowers from the "Amazing Life" set using black Memento ink.  I used 8 of them!  I only cut 9 so it's not like I wasted my fussy cutting!!!  I colored the flowers using the Blends pens.  I used both light and dark Pool Party, Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive for the leaves.

I stamped the cake from the "Amazing Life" set using black Memento ink.  I colored the cake using the same colors as the flowers (except for the Old Olive).  I taped the cake in place with snail tape.

I added the flowers using small Dimensionals.  And that was it.

I had fun making this card.  I really love those little flowers.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
