Stampin' Up! Elements of Style makes elegant Birthday Cards

I told you I'd be back! I got a Stampin' Up! order in the mail this morning, and in it was a stamp set I have had on my wish list for a while, but seriously had to get after my Upline held a class using it! I bought Elements of Style, and this is the first card I inked it up for....
This is a 5" square Whisper White card, which is layered with an embossed piece of Whisper White, using the Big Shot, and the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder, I have lightly sprayed it with some Glimmer Mist, but I don't think it is visible in this picture. I have stamped the flowers in Staz On Black and coloured with my Stampin' Write Markers, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Wild Wasabi. I have then sponged the square with Bashful Blue, and Baja Breeze. The sentiment is from Upsy Daisy, and fits well in the corner. 
I am entering this into the Less is More Sketch Challenge, while the proportions are off, I think it still fits in with the sketch. I am also entering this into The Paper Players Anything Goes challenge. 
I have another card to show you, using this same set, but a completely different outcome! So, come back in a few hours, to see it 
Until then....
Happy Stamping!

This is gorgeous. Your coloring is beautiful, and I love how you've sponged blue around the edges.

This is a super image and beautifully coloured, but to fit in with the proportions of our plan at "Less is More", the card really could do with being larger. It's very pretty non the less.
Thanks so much for joining us.
