Beautiful Bouquet, May 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card, Birthday Card

Yup, you guessed it. I still have some May 2019 Paper Pumpkin pieces left.  Actually I have lots of them but I'm hoping to use them up by duplicating some of the cards I have already made. I am on a quest to use up the items in the kit.  Too many times I just make a card or two and then move onto something else.  I'm going to try harder to make cards from the kits and use up the pieces.  

Today's card was found on Pinterest. I did make a few little changes but it's pretty close to the original card.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Very Vanilla card stock.  On top of that is taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Soft Suede card stock that was textured using the "Pinewood Planks" embossing folder.  On top the Soft Suede piece is taped a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Very Vanilla.  And the focal piece is from the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit.  The piece was cut to 3-3/8" x 4-5/8".  

I colored the leaves using the light Old Olive Blends pen. I colored the flower buds using the light Real Red Blends pen.  The tiny buds were colored using the light Bermuda Bay Blends pen.  Click on the photo to see a closer look.

I colored the eggs using a blender pen and the Balmy Blue marker.  I added white dots using the chalk marker.  I colored above the eggs using the Crushed Curry marker.  And I colored the nest using the So Saffron marker. I also colored over some of the Crushed Curry area to soften it a bit.  I taped this piece to the Very Vanilla piece on the card.

The words were stamped on a piece that came in the kit.  I had stamped Soft Suede on it using the splatter image in the kit. I did stamp off two times before I stamped onto the piece. 

The words are from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set. I used Soft Suede ink to stamp them.  I set that piece in place using Dimensionals.

The feather is from the kit. I punched it out and set it in place using two small Dimensionals.  

I thought it was a pretty card and would make a great masculine birthday card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
