Pink Trellis - Happy Birthday

"And specks of gold, like fine sand
Add vague stars to their mystical eyes."
                                                                                      ------------Charles Baudelaire

Hi, Friends.....

I am back with another card for the current Waffle Flower Challenge, inspired by the colors and flowers in their inspiration photo:

In my never-ending quest to find ways to use my scraps, I made a background of very narrow strips layered in a criss-cross pattern and then dry embossed with my Darice - Ranunculus folder.  I inked the background with Distress Inks - Salty Ocean, Worn Lipstick, and Forest Moss to accentuate the floral pattern.  I think it looks like a garden trellis.  What do you think?
My sentiment is from the MFP - What a Fox stamp set.  I stamped it with Memento - London Fog and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I inked the edges of the panels with the same London Fog ink.  Then I layered some Prima flowers and added an adhesive pearl center to finish up everything. 

Hope you enjoyed my card and that it gives you some ideas for using some of your scraps, too!!
