Happy Birthday - Waffle Flower Challenge

Hi, Friends.....

I am back with my last entry into the current Waffle Flower Photo Inspiration Challenge,  using their wonderful color palette.  I have had so much fun using this inspiring combo and I am going to be sad to put these papers away.

 



This time I used stamps from Inspired by Stamping's Graceful Hydrangea set.  I stamped the beautiful hydrangea image and the sentiment each with Distress Ink - Stormy Sky.  I love the bare stamped look for this, so I didn't even heat-emboss.  



I pulled out a tag (Hooray, I actually used one of these!!) from a dollar rack tag pad in my stash to layer beneath my images.  A wisp of chiffon ribbon adds an airy touch.





Here you can get a little closer look at that fabulous script on the sentiment!

The K&Co. background paper has a hint of foiling on the swirls.  You can see it a little bit on the photo below.

I added a couple sets of knobby little adhesive pearls to finish it off and mounted the front on a cream card base.  I rarely use much yellow, so I was pleasantly surprised with how much I loved this card.  I really like the vintage look it has.  Thanks, Waffle Flower, for such a lovely palette to use!!!
