Happiness Shared Birthday - Mojo Monday #178

Another awesome sketch from Mojo Monday!  I wanted to make something very feminine after all my masculine cards lately and this sketch proved the perfect layout.  Here's my card .....

I really like how feminine this card turned out, all the Basic Pearls take it over the top, don't you think?  I did something a bit different on this one.  I used the Stampin' Up! Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder on the two Very Vanilla pieces.  For the circle, I centered one of the medallions from the folder onto the circular piece, ran it through my Big Shot, then using a dauber, I daubed on some Pink Pirouette classic ink very, very lightly ( or as my favourite grandson says, vee, vee, light  LOL).  Then for the rectangular piece I used the same embossing folder but I used 2 different sections of it.  There is a medallion part under the flower embellishment, and one of the edges to put some along the bottom.  Then I again daubed some Pink Pirouette classic ink very, very lightly so the colour only goes on the raised portions of the embossed image.  I stamped the large Dogwood Blossom from the set Happiness Shared in Basic Black ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, coloured it with an Aqua Pen and the Watercolour Wonder Crayons and fussy cut it out.  Then I adhered it to the top of the rectangular piece over some of the embossing.
