Stampin Up Birthday Blossoms Card

My card stash is running really low right now and I need to work on getting it stocked back up *okie wonders why since she rarely sends out any cards and just ends up giving most of them away to her friends so they can send them out* so I've been trying to think of cards to make. Since BFF Carmen sent me the Graphic 45 Mother Goose paper line I wanted to use it on a card.

Supplies Used:

I wasn't sure how I would like the sentiment stamped on top of the flowers I had stamped but once I got done I thought it looked okay. I always have a hard time stamping on top of another stamped image unless the set is made that way so this was out of my comfort zone a bit. If you look at the flower at the top of the page you can see a little bit of glimmer where I added the Perfect Pearls. The grayish on the petals of the flowers is actually Perfect Pearls, some things are just difficult to photograph and it seems anything shimmery is difficult.

The flowers were stamped on the patterned paper with More Mustard and the green on the leaves with Garden Green. The Pacific Point cardstock and ink went perfect with the blue in the Mother Goose collection and I got really lucky there and then even more lucky was the brads I had match almost perfectly. I added a bit of Perfect Pearls to the middle of the flowers since they looked a little too plain otherwise. And yes...I am getting addicted to Perfect Pearls, thank you for noticing *okie cracks up laughing*.

Now I gotta figure out what kind of card to make next!
