Wonderful Pink Birthday

Hello! I had a chance to make a card today so I am back a little sooner than I had planned. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I use Friends Are Forever for this card.

I stamped the flower image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored with Copics, starting with RV19. 

I added RV23. 

Then RV21. 

I used colored the other two flowers the same way and used my blender pen to soften the highlights on the petals. I used Y17 in the centers and YG95 on the stems. 

Cut using Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities and sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink, while still in the die. 

I stamped the sentiment, from The Giving Tree, and cut it with another Spellbinders circle die. Then I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink. 

I layered with Pure Luxury Sweet Corn cardstock and SU Pretty In Pink. I used more Spellbinders dies, this time Scallop Circle Nestabilities, to cut my layers. For the larger background, I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink and embossed with my Swiss Dots CB folder.
