This card is for a dear friend whose birthday is today.  Happy Birthday Evelyn!  Because she loves to garden & has a beautiful yard, I thought this Stippled Blossom card fit her to a tee.  

I created my own background paper by stamping the two step stamp in stamped off Crisp Cantaloupe Ink.  On the front panel, the full flower background is stamped in stamped off Crisp Cantaloupe while the shaded top is stamped in Calypso Coral Ink.  The leaves are done with a combo of Pear PizazzWild Wasabi Ink.

A strip of Wild Wasabi 1/2" Seam Binding provides  grounding for my card.  It is highlighted with a thin strip of Calypso Coral card stock.  In addition, a trio of pearls draws the eye down.

The colors are more vibrant than they appear but in order to keep the ribbon from overtaking my card, I had to do some editing.  The center of the flowers are highlighted with a bevy of small pearls.  My sentiment from Sassy salutations is on the inside of my card.
