I’m flabbergasted that it’s my Granny’s 94th birthday this week!

One of my neighbours has some gorgeous flowers outside their front door, so I used this as my inspiration for her card:

Flowers July 2014

I started off with an A6 textured white card base & some Stampin’ UP! ‘Pool Party’ card stock, that I stamped with the woodgrain stamp from ‘Way Out West‘ in ‘Smoky Slate’ ink.

I die cut the medium of the ‘Stitched Tags‘ die set from white card stock and stamped the sentiment from ‘Folk Art Label 25‘ on it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I stamped the ‘Simple Sprig‘ in Lucky Limeade on Pistachio Pudding card stock and die cut it with the matching die set. The largest flower from ‘Two Step Floral Sprig‘ was Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral ink, the smaller flower was either Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple and Strawberry Slush inks or Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder. I fussy cut the flowers, then arranged them on the card before attaching everything with roll-on glue.

I hope my Granny likes this card & I hope you like it too!

I will be entering this card in the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge #21 – Anything Goes.
