Vivid Birthday Vases, CTS61

Greetings on this Monday morning, all! It's still gray and cold here in NY, and I still have spring and flowers on my mind! I have another card featuring the Vivid Vases stamp set, which I think is going to be my favorite stamp in the Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog this year. 

This one is clean and simple with lots of white space, made specially for the challenge at CAS(e) this sketch! This great simple layout leaves lots of room for interpretation, and it took me quite a while to decide what to make. Perhaps I have too many options?

I masked off the greeting on the bottom of the stamp as I wanted to add my own birthday greeting. It was stamped in Black Stazon Ink, then colored in with ink pads and a blender pen.

Card Stock: Whisper White, Pool Party
Ink Pads: Black Stazon, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point
