Birthday Bouquet


Meet today's card.
I am always inspired when I pick up a new stamp set and that is how this card came about. 
This sweet little set from Lawn Fawn is called Fab Flowers.

I seldom to never buy new inks but decided to try out some of the ones from Lawn Fawn now that they come in the little cubes.  I have to say that I was very happy with how well they stamped.

I began by placing the flowers inside my Misti.  Since this is a layering stamp set, I stamped with the lightest colour first then added the darker over the top placing my flowers randomly in the corner of my card.  Those inks gave really nice, bright coverage and were great to work with.
Next, I inked up the birthday sentiment from Stamping Bellas with Versamark ink and stamped it onto a black strip of cardstock and white heat embossed it.  I placed that over my bouquet using pop dots.
I added a few pearls for interest.
