In Color Birthday Wishes

So I decided today to make a handful of birthday cards for some friends who are having birthdays this month, and I also wanted to use more of my InColors since they haven't gotten a whole lot of wear so far... and this card ended up being not only easy and fun to make, but it would work for both men and women - you can't get more versatile than that, right? So to create this one, I stamped the grass in the background with Versamark to not overpower when I stamped the sentiment over it in black. I then stamped the leaves in black Staz On on Confetti Vanilla cs. Then using stipple brushes, I pounced some color over the leaves to make them pop. Gold brads and coordinating brad washers with a bit of piercing complete the look.

Sets: Inspired by Nature, Upsy Daisy (sentiment), Organic Grace (hostess L1)
Colors: Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Confetti Vanilla
Other: Piercing tools, gold brads, 1/4" circle punch, dimensionals, stipple brushes

Have a beautiful day, everyone~
