FMS......Birthday Wishes

Hello Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the Freshly Made Sketch.

I love this sketch and I thought I would use another new set from Stampin Up called Indescribable Gift.
I decided I would use the flower as part of the elements in the sketch.
I stamped the flower a few times onto some white card stock using Black Stazon ink.
I colored using my water brush and ink pads, I used Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi ink along with just a bit of Chocolate Chip.

The base of my card is white card stock and then I used another piece of white and cut out a circle and then embossed with my dot EF.
I added one of the stamped and colored flower behind the circle cutout, centering it to get the largest flowers where I wanted them.
I then fussy cut out all the flowers and leaf sections again to add to the main image using dimensionals. I brought the buds and leaves out over the top of the circle.
I cut my scallop edges using one of the dies in the Adorning Edges and added them to the side of my embossed piece.
I then added this piece to the card front using some foam tape.
The small sentiment flag is from the retired Occasional Quotes  stamp set.
This card was a bit time consuming, but I really enjoyed the coloring and layering together..
This is such a beautiful stamp for coloring!

Thanks for stopping by today!
