Repeat Stamping

Good morning.
I've really had fun playing working with the Fleurs Nouveau stamps.
For my first card I had great fun colouring the flower with pencils and wanted to keep the colours soft as I used Memento London Fog for stamping as a change to using black ink.
I cut out the flowers with an oval die and blended with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
I stamped around the oval with words from the Amazing Birthday words. These are clear stamps and they will bend beautifully and you can see where you're stamping. The flower oval was attached with foam pads and I mounted onto a pale pink.
The mathematical side of my brain was very happy doing the repeat stamping for the background of this card. The stamp is from the Nouveau Lovebirds set. I love symmetrical things like fabrics and wall paper.
I stamped with a pale green and because there is a lot of detail in the background decided a sentiment on a label shape would be sufficient as a topper.
Thanks for stopping by
