Looks Like Spring

Back in January, I ordered my very first Stampin Up! stamps, and I couldn't wait to ink them up. But I actually haven't used them as much as I thought I would have by now. Shame on me!

I pulled out the Looks Like Spring set and put it to use. I had used the big flower and one of the background stamps, but the others were feeling neglected.

So I put them to use on this birthday card I made for Kelly - my cousin-in-law!

It's hard to tell in the picture, but I stamped the large flower in brown and then in pink and cut them both out. The brown layer is behind the pink layer. Then I stamped the smaller one in brown and added it to the top with a brad.

For the three small flowers, I used the LLS punch and punched them first in solid pink cardstock, and then punched the stamped flowers and layered them with brads as well. I LOVE that punch - I wish they made one for the larger flower!

This was the first time I used two background stamps together, and I actually found it a little challenging to get them lined up just right, but I'm pleased with the final outcome.

The sentiment is from the Sincere Salutations set and the ribbon is from Michaels' $1 bin.
