Morning Glory Thinking of You Birthday

One of the things I like doing, is to make up flowers and die-cuts ahead of time so when I need them they are ready for me to use.  That's the case with today's card.  I had the morning glories all stamped and cut as well as the sentiment.  I thought they would look well together and so they do.

The challenge at The Flower Challenge is to "use a previous challenge" and the one I chose to use is from November 5, 2016.  It was their second challenge and was an occasions one.  My thinking of you card is actually a birthday card for my daughter-in-law.  I love those flowers from the Build-A-Flower:  Morning Glory stamp set from Altenew.

The inside of my card is stamped using the now retired Beautiful Birthday stamp set that was in the 2012-13 Annual Catalog from Stampin' Up!

Stamp Set:  Build-A-Flower:  Morning Glory (Altenew); Beautiful Birthday (Stampin' Up!)
Inks:  So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Pistachio Pudding (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock:  Oreo, Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions)
Dies:  Thinking of You Die (Altenew)
Other:  Clear Wink of Stella Brush, Pearl Basic Jewels (Stampin' Up!)
