A Happy Blooming Birthday...

The challenge at The Card Concept is based on this inspirational photo.
Not too sure what category my card fits into "Shabby Chic" or "Classy & Elegant", probably trending more to the "Shabby Chic" category.  I had fun making this card using the emboss resist technique stamping the leaf image in Versamark on Whisper White cardstock and embossing with White Embossing Powder.  I then stamped the "Hardwood" background stamp with the new Tip Top Taupe ink over the top of the white embossed leaf image and sponged on Tip Top Taupe all over this piece.  The white embossed leaves popped from the background when I wiped off the excess ink. 

The middle of the card was made using the Oval Framelits and the flowers were made using the "Flower Patch" stamp set and the coordinating die, with the leaves from the "Kinda Eclectic" stamp set which I fussy cut.  I used ink colours of Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral.
