Soft Colored Happy Birthday

I love the soft look of this card.  The background paper was printed using my Imagine and the Blossom cartridge, then mounted it on kraft card stock.
The banner I cut using my Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped it with a CTMH stamp using Olive ink.

I cut the tic-tac-toe kind of grate using my Gypsy and some lines I welded together.
I placed them on the paper but thought it looked to plain behind them so I took one of those crazy little foam thingies that come in the box when you get a new cartridge and inked it up with some light ink and stamped it, came out perfect just what I wanted.  Then all the flowers are stickers I placed inside the squares.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog, I love to read your comments.

Beautiful!!! Love the bg paper, the banner, the sentiment and flowers. Love the grate. What a novel idea to use that foam thingie for an inker. I just throw them away. Gotta hang on to them now for sure!! :)
