Hi everyone! Today I decided to challenge myself and use a stamp set that I do not use often enough.  Inspired by Nature is such a popular stamp set and I love all of the cards I've seen made with this set!

I began my card by first coloring the flower stamp using my Stampin' Up! markers and then I stamped it onto my card stock.  Then I stamped my grass using the image on the other side of the stamp (this is a double mounted set).  I first used wild wasabi ink and I inked up the stamp and then stamped off onto a scrap piece of card stock and then onto the bottom portion of my card.  I repeated this step again, this time using chocolate chip ink.

After I was finished with my stamping I decided that my card still needed some color and so I added a bit of sponging along the bottom/ground.  I first began lightly sponging using chocolate chip ink (ever so lightly) and then I went upward using wild wasabi.

To finish off my card I punched the bottom of my chocolate chip card stock using my eyelet border punch, added my ribbon, and finally my happy birthday sentiment. 

I hope you like my card, this is one of my very favorite color combinations!  Thanks for taking the time to stop on by!  Make it a great day!
