Birthday Bloom

Time is short but I wanted to share this simple card with you.  Over the next few months there are several birthdays coming up for which I need cards.  This one was made using the Avant Garden stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.  I first stamped the flower in Watermelon Wonder.  Then, I stamped over that image with Flirty Flamingo.  They are close to the same with one being lighter than the other but there really are two colors to the flower.  😊  The sentiment is stamped in Island Indigo.

Stamp Set:  Avant Garden; Inks:  Flirty Flamingo, Island Indigo, Watermelon Wonder; Cardstock:  Island Indigo, Whisper White, Whisper White Thick; Other:  Pearl Basic Jewels

My card has been entered in the following challenges, CAS Colours & Sketches and Freshly Made Sketches.  For all their challenge details, click the images below.
