Birthday Blossoms in Wisteria Wonder

Hello, Crafters.

Today's card features three products that will be retiring on 
31st  May  2018 - they are the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set, the 
Pansy Punch and Wisteria Wonder. I stamped all the images, 
including  those inside the card, on Whisper White Cardstock
 (CS) and used Jet Black Stazon Ink.

 I used my Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight Marker
 Pens to colour the flowers, and the three pairs of leaves. There
 was a fair amount of colouring to do but I found it very relaxing and 
very therapeutic, in fact,  had a great time doing it and thoroughly enjoyed it!

 I fussy cut the three pairs of leaves as well as the two small pairs 
of flowers, neither of which were particularly difficult. I die cut the
 sentiment withthe Stitched Shape Framelits - oval size 3, and 
layered it on a Layering Oval Framelits scallop size no 5. I adhered
 the two layers using Tombow and then adhered to the card front
 using Dimensionals. 
I adhered one pair of leaves to each of the large single flowers using
 Tombow, and then adhered two to the card front using Dimensionals. 
I stamped the small flowers on the bottom of the Whisper White CS
 layer that was for the inside of the card and coloured them exactly the 
same as I did those on the front of the card.
 I adhered the third individual flower which had two leaves attached to 
it, in the bottom right-hand corner just touching the small painted flowers.
 The final touch to finish my card was to use my Fine-Tip Glue Pen on 
all the yellow flower centres on the front of the card to give them a shine.
 I didn't use my Fine-Tip Glue Pen on the flowers inside the card 
until I was happy that the outside flowers were thoroughly dry. 
Then I able to repeat the process on the flowers inside the card. I'm
 happy with my finished card, which makes me a tad more sad
 that these products are retiring! LOL!
I hope you have a great Bank Holiday weekend, and are able to make the most of the fabulous weather we have been promised! ☺ Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
