This is actually the second coloring of this stamp for the birthday card. My first version I tried over-stamping with my misti...but I must have moved it a sixteenth of an inch...just enough to create blur on the outlines. At first I was completely irritated with myself...but then I decided I wasn't overly fond of the original petunia shades instead of a light pink they were more light lavender. So a new card stamped and colored and I got this version. I also added some blue-green leaves to the second version. I so love this one! Hard to see but there are a few clear sparklie nuvo dots around the bouquet from Wplus9. The sentiment is from Concord and 9th, the die is Lawn Fawn, and the card base is Stampin Up.
I am adding this floral birthday card to two challenges: Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes, and Always Fun Challenges #4 - Flowers.
Now that first card panel...I wish I had photographed it but I did not. I did manage to fix it enough to use in a die cut though. A black sharpie to make the blurred lines a thick outline did the trick. It was late, and I managed to adhere everything to my clear embossed card base which I had stamped upside down. No more do overs on this card...its gonna be mailed as is. The hearts and dots are so small it is not really noticeable.
