Wow Flowers

The scan on this picture isn't that great! There is supposed to be Pink Pirouette flowers in the white space (next to the baja breeze flowers). I haven't played much with this set....lately it's been Dreams du Jour! I just love that butterfly!!! Okay, but that's not the stamp I should be talking about! LOL.

If you haven't noticed I like to use sketches or color combos to get me started when I'm in my stamp room. One, because I usually don't get much time without my little ones following me around or wanting to help (yes, I love every second of's just more difficult getting things accomplished)! So I need to speed up my stamping time any way that I I turn to sketches and/or color combos. For this card, I used help with my color combo...haven't played too much with the in colors, so I'm still getting used to them. Stampin' Up!(R) has a color combo chart for the new in colors and I end up using that a lot!! ---------->Click Here<---------- to view the chart.

For some reason, this color combo jumped out at me. Basic gray, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze. I started with white cardstock and stamped the flower image from Wow Flowers randomly in Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze.

I cut a strip of Baja Breeze and punched it with the Scallop Edge Punch. I attached that to the stamped strip of white cardstock and added some wide regal rose ribbon to hide the "seam".

For the sentiment, I stamped the "birthday wishes" in Basic Gray onto the bottom right corner of the Baja Breeze piece and adhered that to the Basic Gray card base.

To finish the card, I stamped the flower image in Basic gray onto Whisper white and punched it out with the 1 1/4" circle punch. I matted it with a punch 1 3/8" circle of Baja Breeze and layered that onto a scalloped piece of regal rose. Hope you've enjoyed my card.
