I'm mixin' it up for the challenge over at The CLASSroom at Ellen Hutson. We're to use product from #essentials by ellen and Savvy Stamps. I had these adorable little blooms from Flower Blossom Set 1 just waiting to be used. And don't they look sweet paired with that happy sentiment from Up the Happy? I think it works great for a birthday card!
I die cut the blooms, leaving them in the negative to make lightly inking them with Distress Inks (Pink Lemonade, Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters) easier.
Then I worked on arranging them, took a photo to remember where I wanted to place them, stamped my sentiment in Versafine Smokey Gray and then adhered the blooms with some going off the edge. Trimmed the edges. Then added the butterfly "up" top cuz it just felt right!
I'm also sharing this card at:
