Flowers for your Birthday

Giving flowers to a friend for her birthday, be they the real deal or the stamped variety, is one of my favorite things to do. Today I have some gorgeous Want2Scrap™ product to show off my stamped pitcher of flowers. Come along with me and check it all out, won't you?

This card really began with the Nestabling Fleur de Lis Rectangles Mocha Pearl. The gorgeous rich coppery brown color had me turning to my Eco Green Crafts™ acrylic paints in Pure Copper and Mulch to paint up the Chipboard Embellishments - Pack of 5 - Style C from Want2Scrap™.

Delicious! The chipboard has just the slightest copper shine to it and is the perfect place to land some 72 Count - Hot Pink Rhinestones - Self Adhesive. The swirl is a nice compliment to the floral look to this card and the hot pink rhinestones are a perfect match to the raspberry fizz hot pink paper.

I double-stamped the sentiment with both a copper ink and a chocolate ink. Copper is not a color I chose often but I am SO glad I did today! You can see how the beautiful Nestabling™ really did guide my design decisions for this card by repeating the coppery brown and setting it against pops of bright cheerful colors.

Thanks so much for visiting me here today!
