Pansy Patch, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

I had actually put my "Pansy Patch" bundle away (really!!!!) and when I saw this card on Pinterest I got my set out and got to work. You can see the original card here

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  I took some scrap Basic White card stock and die cut the two larger flowers and the bud on top. I lightly sponged them with Daffodil Delight ink.

Then I cut the Highland Heather petals and sponged them using Gorgeous Grape ink.

The solid leaves and bud stem piece were die cut using Soft Succulent card stock and sponged with Evening Evergreen. I die cut the detailed leaves part using Evening Evergreen card stock. 

The dark pieces around the flowers and on the bud are die cut from a scrap piece of Night of Navy.

And the last die cut pieces were the Crushed Curry for the center of the flowers.

I assembled the pieces using glue because I wanted to make sure I had some wiggle room in case the pieces aren't where I want them to be. 

Before affixing my pieces to the front of the card, I took my blending brush and scrubbed on some Gorgeous Grape.  

I set the larger flowers in place to see where the words would go. I stamped the words from the same "Pansy Patch" set using black Memento ink.

I glued the two large flowers in place. Then I added the top leaf and the flower bud at the same time. The other leaves were glued in place and the card was done.

This was a very fun card to make. I think it took longer to die cut all the pieces than it did to sponge and assemble them.  I like the way it turned out and now I want to have pansies in my flower garden this year!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's birthday card,
