Varied Vases, Birthday Card

Today I'm playing with the "Varied Vases" set.  It's in the current catalog.  I just placed my order this morning and now I wait for my new stuff to come.  I wait patiently!!! LOL  But in the meantime I will play with sets that are in the current catalog. 

I saw this card when I was going to place my order this morning.  You can see the original card here.  I changed it a little but it's still pretty.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Melon Mambo.  And on top of that is a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock.  

I stamped the vases first and then the flowers.  I colored the flowers on the left using the Melon Mambo marker. The flowers in the center I used Mango Melody ink and the flower stamp.  And for the flowers on the right I used the dark Petal Pink Blends pen.  The tulip was stamped using black Memento ink on Melon Mambo card stock and then punched out.  I set it in place using a small Dimensional.

I colored the inside of the vases with the light Petal Pink Blends pen.

I cut a 2-1/4" x 3-7/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP), mine is from the now retired "Share What You Love" pack.  I taped the DSP to the bottom of the card and then took a piece of Melon Mambo ribbon and taped the ends on the backside.  I tied a knot in the front with a smaller piece of ribbon.  

The words are from the "Southern Serenade" set, which I believe is retired as well.  I need to get my stamp sets sorted out so the retired stuff is on a different shelf.  Though the words don't matter, you will find what you like or need and put it in that space anyway.  I stamped the words on Whisper White card stock using black Memento ink.  I die cut them with the stitched oval die and then die cut a Melon Mambo scalloped circle.  I taped the ovals together and then set them in place using Dimensionals.  

And for the final touch, I added a couple of small pearls to the flowers on the left.  And that was it.  I thought it was a pretty simple card and a pretty card at that!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
