Varied Vases, Thank You or Friendship Card

I saw this pretty card on Pinterest and I just had to make it. I have not used the "Varied Vases" set in a long time.  Other than to use the "Birthday Wishes" words. You can see the original card here.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Real Red card stock.  The original card uses Flirty Flamingo.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.

I set up the Whisper White piece in my Stamparatus so I could stamp the scalloped image.  I wanted to get it as straight as possible.  I stamped it using black Memento ink.

Then I stamped the words from the "Varied Vases" set using black Memento ink

I punched out the vases using the matching punch for the "Varied Vases" set.

I set them on the scalloped line so I could lightly mark with a pencil where the flowers would go. 

Stamping the flowers was easy enough. I just let the stems hang over the edge of my stamping block so I didn't have to mask anything off.  I should have stamped my flowers higher than the lines I had lightly drawn.

I colored the scalloped piece and the flowers using my Blender Pen and my Real Red ink pad.  I don't use my Blender pen much because I just LOVE my Blends Pens.

When I went to put the vases on they were too tall. I had to trim the top and bottoms of the right and left vase.  The center one was fine.  And the vases are not evenly spaced apart. This was a bit more difficult than I thought it would be.  Not that it doesn't look okay this way, I was just hoping to have them spaced nicer.  I do like the  card and how it looks.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit today,
