One more birthday

This card ended up being my favorite that I made over the weekend. I just love the mix of the blues, the little gems, and the vellum base. My goodness, that vellum, it's absolutely dreamy. I kept convincing myself that I didn't need vellum cardstock, I already had vellum paper. Well, as someone who is pretty obsessed with making clear cards, vellum paper really doesn't cut it for card bases. I really love the bold shape of the flowers in Garden of Life. I wanted to bring in some dots, so using the same inks as the flowers, I inked up a dot, stamped it off once, then applied it to my paper. I finished off the design with some dotted baby blue organdy ribbon, a little bit of patterned paper, a birthday greeting and some gelly gems. Since this is a vellum card, I thought

I should add in an decorated interior. It's pretty basic, but pretty and coordinated.

I just found out this card won in one of PaperTrey Ink's August Guest Star Stamper! I'm very excited!

To answer a question, blues used are Memento's Bahama Blue and Danube Blue.
