Wallpaper Art Happy Birthday

I love this stamp set from Altenew. All their flower stamps are amazing. This time I used a pretty blue color for the flowers since it was for my oldest daughter’s birthday card and she loves those colors. I stamped the sentiment on the back panel before embossing, but I used too light of an ink and you couldn’t see it very well, so I stamped it again with an ombre coloring, fussy cut around it, and adhered it over the first try. Liked it much better.
