Avant Garden Birthday Card


This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.


My card today uses the Bermuda Bay as its base which I layered with Whisper White cardstock on Early Espresso cardstock.


I then took the Avant Garden Stamp Set from the Sale-a-bration catalog to create my border on either side of the Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the flower in Peekaboo Peach ink, the petals in Bermuda Bay ink, and the pollen stems in Early Espresso.


I originally stamped the sentiment right on the Whisper White, but I stamped it crooked, so I stamped it on a separate piece of Whisper White in Bermuda Bay and cut it out and layered it over Early Espresso cardstock.
