A Birthday Card for my downline using Flirty Flowers

My downline's birthday was on Friday last week, but because of the holiday weekend and my craft show we were unable to celebrate the event until today.
This is the card I made for her...

The technique used here is referred to as water stamping i.e. stamping with water on a stamp rather than ink.
First I sponged the background with Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzelberry, Pear Pizzazz, and Crushed Curry, applying the sponge quite heavily yet leaving some light spots and overlapping some of the colors.
I used the largest of the solid stamp of  the Flirty Flower set, spritzed it with water and stamped it on to the sponged background in two places.  Holding it in place for a while gives this type of stamping a better effect.
Then, using Black Memento, I stamped the rest of the stamps in a random manner all over the rest of this art piece.


The sentiment, from "Special Celebration" was stamped on Whisper White with Bermuda Bay, matted with Bermuda Bay cardstock  and adhered to the card front with dimensionals.
A 1/8" piece of Bermuda Bay stitched ribbon was wrapped around the card and tied beside the sentiment piece into a ribbon

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Flirty Flowers, Timeless Texture
Inks:  Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzelberry, Black Memento
Papers:  Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
Accessories:  1/8" stitched Bermuda Bay ribbon (retired)
