Another Special Reason - birthday card

Today I'm sharing another card using the Special Reason - Stylish Stems stamp and die bundle and leftover scraps I had on my desk after making this Just Add Ink challenge card I shared on Friday. Life is pretty busy at colour me happy hq right now so using the same supplies definitely saved time & energy. Something I need to remember more :)

For this one I used the smaller flower outline & detail dies in the Stylish Stems die set. Oh how I love these flowers.

I think the ombre look makes the patterned paper even lovelier. Like my other card, I applied ink to the paper using a sponge brayer with pool party & (retired) coastal cabana ink pads. If you don't have coastal cabana, try a light touch with bermuda bay.

The middle flowers are only attached at the flower centre to give more dimension & are popped up on dimensionals.

The birthday sentiment is from the Special Reason stamp set. I think this plays nicely with the patterned paper too.

Happily I had a leftover scrap of paper to use on the inside, which I teamed with another flower. I didn't add a sentiment as I wanted to write my own note.

Thanks very much for visiting today. If you liked this card, check out my other Special Reason card too & remember to pin it for later inspiration. If you'd like to make your own, the supplies I used are all listed below & can be ordered from my store. Let me know if you need help or any other info too.
