Stampin' Up Hand Penned Happy Birthday Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I'm super excited to now be apart of the Happy Inkin' Blog Hop every Thursday! This week we have a sketch challenge.  I used Stampin' Up Hand-Penned Bundle.

I started with a panel of Stampin' Up Hand-Penned DSP and adhered it to a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock.

I dry embossed a piece of Basic White card stock with Stampin' Up Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to the card front with liquid adhesive.
I stamped the image from Stampin' Up Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set with Basic Gray ink on a piece of Basic White card stock.  I stamped the inside of each flower with Misty Moonlight and Pale Papaya ink.    I stamped the inside of each leaf with Garden Green ink.  

I die cut the image with Stampin' Up Penned Flower Dies.  I die cut a piece of Garden Green card stock with the leaves dies.  I adhered the floral image with Stampin' Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves with liquid adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Timeless Tulip Stamp Set with Misty Moonlight ink on a piece of Pale Papaya.  I die cut the sentiment with Stampin' Up Tasteful Labels Dies. 

I adhered the card front to a Pale Papaya card base folded in tent fashion.  I finished the card front off with Stampin' Up Genial Gems.

The inside is a panel of Basic White card stock with a birthday sentiment from Stampin' Up Best Year Stamp Set with Misty Moonlight ink.  I stamped the flower in the corner the same way I did for the card front.  I adhered the Basic White to a panel of Misty Moonlight.
