Fun Flowers

When I saw the Just Add Ink Challenge, I knew I wanted to play. I've been so busy at work that I haven't had time to do many challenges, but I had today off and spent it (mostly) in the studio.

I've seen this flower before and thought I would try it today with this challenge.

I couldn't decide which color to use for the background and which color to use for the flower so I tried one of each.

I started with a base of Crumb Cake. On one card I used a Pretty in Pink background layer with one embossing folder. On the other card I used a So Saffron background layer with another embossing folder. Then on each I used the opposite color flower. I used the large scallop circle and cut to the center on each scallop. Then I used the scallop circle and did the same. I popped the smaller flower on top of the larger one, and I topped each off with a 3/4" circle in the center. The grass, stem, and leaf (which I popped up )in Certainly Celery.

I used the Well Scripted set to stamp Happy Birthday in Crumb Cake on Whisper White and added a little pink gem to dot the "i" on birthday.

Thanks for looking....
