Climbing Roses, Beautiful Bouquet, Birthday Card

Only a few more days and this fun stamp set, "Climbing Roses" retires.  I will miss it, it's got a lot of fun pieces to it. I love the lattice thing in the background.  I sure does add a lot to the card.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Real Red card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black.  I textured a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock using the "Pinewood Planks" embossing folder. 

I die cut the lattice looking piece using Basic Black card stock. 

I stamped the flowers from the "Climbing Roses"set. I die cut them. I also cut a smaller flower and die cut it as well.  

I colored the flowers using the Real Red marker.  I don't have the Blends pen yet, but it's on my list to get next month.  I colored the inside parts of the flower using the Cherry Cobbler marker.  The leaves were colored in using the Granny Apple Green Blends pen, both light and dark.  

I die cut two leaves using Granny Apple Green. I also die cut the scalloped oval at the same time.

I stamped the words from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set and die cut them with the Stitched oval die.  I taped this piece to the scalloped oval die.  I had stamped the words close to the right side of the oval because I knew I'd be covering up part of the oval on the left. 

I glued the lattice piece in place and then set the flower piece on top using Dimensionals.  I taped the ovals in place, slipping them a little bit behind the flower piece.  I taped the ends of the leaves I die cut and slipped them under the oval and then I pressed the ovals in place. 

Next I set the smaller flower in place on top of the oval. I added a Dimensional behind it.  

And for the final touch I colored over the flowers with the "Wink of Stella" pen.  And that was it.  

This was a very fun card to make and I really enjoyed coloring it.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
