Bunch of Blossoms Birthday

We're experiencing a heat wave here with the temperature in the high 30's with a humid factor of 40+.  My poor flowers outside are really suffering and my lawn and well as everyone's in the neighbourhood is burnt brown from lack of rain.  The weather man explains this weather as a dome of high pressure keeping the hot weather trapped in a "dome" .  I don't know what  we would do without air conditioning. So I'm basically staying inside and playing with my toys.  My choice today:  
the Blossom Builder Punch and coordinating stamp set, and made this birthday card.

I used the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set with the coordinating Blossom Builder Punch.  The flower is built with a 3 step stamping process.
Petals of Flower:  Furty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Black Memento
Stem and Leaves:  Old Olive (stamped off), Old Olive
Center:  Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake

The Petals of the flowers were punched out using the coordinating punch; the stem and leaves were hand cut.

In order to create more interest and fill in some of the white spaces, various stamps of the "Timeless Texture" stamp set and Old Olive ink (stamped off)

Supplies Used: 
Stamps: Bunch of Flowers, Timeless Texture
Inks: Black Memento, Flurty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake
Papers: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pop of Pink Specialty DSP
Accessories: Blossom Builder Punch, dimensionals, 1" circle punch, Wink of Stella clear glimmer brush
