Fifth Avenue Floral

I love the colors in this card which were inspired by the designer paper used from the Pocket Full of Posies pack. The base is Early Espresso cardstock and a panel of Eggplant Envy was dry embossed using the Flower Garden Embossing Folder. I stamped the flowers from Fifth Avenue Floral on Vanilla cardstock in Eggplant and Baja Breeze ink and layered onto a piece of Baja Breeze cardstock. Happy Birthday was stamped in Early Espresso and flowers were stamped off once and then stamped on the Vanilla cardstock to make them faint. I added pearls to the side of the sentiment piece. The sketch challenge called for ribbon, but when I added that, it looked like a present!  And, that was not the look I wanted on this card:)  The pieces of Vanilla cardstock were sponged with Crumb Cake ink. The sketch can be found at Stamping 411, SSC#240.
