Stampin' Up! Pretty Perennials Birthday Card

 Hi Stampers!  Have you had a chance to play with Stampin' Up!'s A Touch of Ink stamp set yet?  The more I use this set, the more I love it!  For this card, I chose to use the use it with the 'happy birthday' from Pretty Perennials.  It was my first time using that set...but I assure you it won't be my last!  

Today's card was inspired by the amazing crafters over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  This sketch immediately had my creative juices flowing!  What can you do with this sketch?

I started this birthday card by stamping the flower from A Touch of Ink in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Basic White Cardstock.  After stamping it three times, I used my Paper Trimmer to trim around the flowers.  Then, using Stampin' Write Markers in Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight, I quickly colored the flowers.  

The 'happy' was stamped with Whisper White Craft ink on a scrap piece of Basic Black cardstock, then fussy cut with Paper Snips.  I used BLACK Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the 'happy' sentiment to the front of the card, then used Multipurpose Glue to attach the 'birthday' to the 'happy.'
