Life and Birthday Basics

I just love this stamp set. This card was inspired by Lisa Johnson's tubbler insert she did when previewing her new set "Life".

I just starting stamping away trying to add different colors and also adding a little sparkle to parts of the flowers and buds. The card base is ripe avocado, I stamped on kraft and matted it with true black. I didn't want to add anything else to the card like ribbon, brads, buttons, I think it would have taken away from the image.
