Painted Poppies, Good Morning Magnolia, Witty-cisms, Birthday Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

Grab the eye bleach!!!  This card did NOT turn out like I had planned.  But lucky you, you get to see the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to my cards.  And this one is sure ugly!!!  I don't even know what I could do to improve it either. Nor do I think I want to even try!

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. 

I stamped the flower from the "Painted Poppies" set using black Memento ink.  I colored it in using both the dark and light Poppy Parade Blends pen. I colored the leaf and stems using both the light and dark Old Olive Blends pens.

I die cut the flower out using the die that complimented the "Good Morning Magnolia" dies.

The word are from the "Witty-cisims" set.  They were stamped using black Memento ink. 

I die cut the words using the die from the "Good Morning Magnolia" dies. 

I sponged the upper left corner of the front of the card using Daffodil Delight ink.

I set the flower in place using Dimensionals.

Next I sponged the edges of the word piece using Daffodil Delight ink.  I set the piece in place using Dimensionals.

And that was it. Your ugly card is now done!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
