Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card

Hey Everyone

I have a new flower stamps to play with!!! Thank you Stampin’ Up!

I initially purchased Happy Birthday Gorgeous from the Stampin’ Up! pre-order JUST for these flowers……I don’t think I even looked at the sentiments that come in the set when I ordered it.  I was thrilled when I looked past the flowers and found all the sentiments that come with it.  It’s a great set with tons of great stamps.

My background watercolour skills are still needing work so I’ve used the watercolour smooshing technique to add a little interest behind my flowers.  I must say – I totally love the effect this technique gives my card. The colours I used for my smooshing were Berry Burst and Powder Pink – two of the new InColours from the 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.  The flowers were stamped with Berry Burst and Sweet Sugarplum.  The leaves are from Jar of Love.  I stamped these in Old Olive and spent the next 20 minutes fussy cutting them.

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.
