Gorgeous Happy Birthday ~ CCMC492, SIP133

Hi stampers!  Today's card is a product of the newest Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #492.  This is a really nice color combo.  All I could think of was flowers when I looked at these colors, so that's where I went.  I used Stamp Ink Paper Sketch Challenge #133 to help me out too.  

I stamped the flowers from Happy Birthday Gorgeous with Memento Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and then colored them in with my Calypso Coral, Old Olive and the Light Night of Navy Stampin' Blends.  I like the look achieved when using the Blends on Crumb Cake cardstock.  The colors are a bit more subtle.  
The DSP is from Merry Little Christmas.  I'm trying to use up my stack and not be such a hoarder.  I'm glad the patterns aren't necessarily just for Christmas.  This one in particular feels springy to me!
