Wild About Flowers Birthday Card


Inspiration:  This is a stepped-up version of  this card from Tuesday.  I needed some birthday cards, so I decided to use the supplies that I had already pulled out with a happier color scheme.  I love the way this card turned out!  I'm hoping you do, too.  I showed it to my hubby and he said "it's okay."  What?  So, he's a guy and it's basically a pink floral card with a butterfly...and a doily.  The doily probably ruined it for him.  Oh well, I think I'll keep him anyway. :)

Tips:
  • I didn't have any Flirty Flamingo DSP, so I made my own.  I stamped one of the stamps from the Build A Birthday stamp set on Whisper White card stock and then punched it out....instant coordinating DSP!
  • The speckles were made with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  If you have a really inky stamp pad, be sure to press the stamp lightly on the card stock.  Otherwise, you'll get some stray marks (that don't look like speckles).
  • The doily is one of the retired White Tea Lace Doilies.  We have new and improved doilies, so I'll list those with the supplies.
