Pretty in Pink Happy Birthday

I was challenged to make a card using Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Blushing Bride & Watermelon Wonder.  Here is what I came up with.

The pink ink behind the word happy is Blushing Bride applied to the Very Vanilla layer with the sponge brayer.  It was actually the first time I'd used the brayer and I really liked it.

I cut "a bunch" of flower and leaf elements from the Botanical Builder Framelits using Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder Card Stock.  I cut the word "happy" from the Hello You Thinlits using Early Espresso Card Stock.  Used Tombow Adhesive to arrange the leaves, flowers and word.

I added some Rhinestones to the flower centers, stamped "birthday", from Number of Years, in Watermelon Wonder Ink then immediately sprinkled Clear Embossing powder on it and embossed it.  You have to be quick or the ink dries and won't emboss.

The base card is Very Vanilla with an Early Espresso layer between the base and top layer. This is a simple card that makes a big impact. I leave the edges of the flowers and leaves unglued to give more dimension to the cards, but it still mails nicely.
