Flourishes Birthday Bash Challenge

For Flourishes 4th Birthday Bash Challenge we were asked to create a card using our favorite stamp set. I have had this stamp set for a while now and I just love it so I decided I would ink it up.The stamp set is Flourishes Sweet Pea. I started my card off with GinaK 120lb pure white cs for my base. I layered that with PTI Blueberry Sky cs that I embossed with the Cuttlebug folder, Victoria, I layered one of the design papers from the Basic Grey Kioshi paper pack on the bottom half of that. With my Grand Caliber I die cut the border from Spellbinders Parisian Accents using the piece of leftover GinaK 120lb pure white cs. I added a piece of green ribbon from Offray. I also added some rhinestones that were in my stash. I stamped the focal image on X-press it Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Copics markers. I backed that onto the PTI Blueberry Sky cs and I used the extra pieces of the border to add to the top and bottom of the image and popped it up on dimentials, I added a sentiment from Flourishes Spring Has Sprung stamp set, that was punched out with an oval punch, and sponged it with Memento Summer Sky ink, and attached it to the focal image. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
