Birthday Grass

I just *love, love, love* this Grass Edge stamp from The Rubber Cafe! For a very simple but pretty card, I vellum embossed again! I told you I'm on that kick now!! I stamped the image, colored the grass on the back of the vellum with Copic YG67 and embossed the flowers, so they turn white.

I separated the happy birthday outline stamp (the rubber cafe) by stamping each word separately so it fit the space I had. I also colored the letters with Copic YG67 for added *pop.*

Other details: Flowers by Prima, glitter brad by Creative Imaginations, dragonfly brads by Creative Impressions, and Cuttlebug branches folder for my background.
