Avant Garden Birthday

I love the colors on this card from the workshop.  I used a new set called Avant Garden in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  It reminds me of an old retired set called Paint Prints, which I still have.  I rarely use ribbon, but it looks darling on this card.

I stamped the flowers using Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo inks, stamping off each flower on the card a second time for a lighter color.  I added leaves and dots with Pear Pizzazz ink, again varying the color with generational stamping.  Quick and easy!  I brushed on some sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen.

I stamped two of the borders from Delicate Details (another Sale-a-Bration set) onto Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo cardstock in the matching ink.  I glued those strips to a white card base and then added the flower panel over top with dimensionals.

I stamped my sentiment in Pear Pizzazz ink and cut it out with the Layering Ovals dies, adding a Pear Pizzazz scalloped oval mat.  Underneath the sentiment, I glued two pieces of ruched ribbon and popped up the ovals so there would be room.  Sweet and simple!
