Floral birthday SC323

There is a stamp site called Tapestry Stamp Techniques that uses multiple small stamps to create background floral arrangements.  I fell in love with them and unfortunately for my bank account, I had to buy a few.  The only stamps I had from Stampin' Up that I thought would even come close to creating this style is the Baby Blossoms stamp set.  I also used SplitCoast Sketch #323 for the design. Here is my card.
Here is my recipe:
Stamps:  Baby Blossoms, Well Scripted
Ink:          Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue
Paper:     Paisley Petals DSP, white, Bashful Blue
Other:     Scalloped edge punch, bashful blue ribbon, pearls
                Oval spellbinder nestabilities

Technique Tips:
  -  I colored inside the oval using my sponge dauber.  To leave the outside white, I left my nestie on the cut out and sponged around the nestie.  This left the "white" layer.  You may have to look closer to see it.
  - The Paisley Petals DSP is a sneak peek at the 2011-2012 big catalog.  You can order this paper along with a new set called Four Frames beginning  April 1 .  Here is a better sneak peek. (They are little blurry.  Not sure why, sorry!)
