A Flower Fest & Beyond the Garden DSP Sneak Peek

This card uses some Beyond the Garden DSP and the stamp set, Flower Fest, that will be available May 1st. It was also inspired by two challenges. First, the PPA#90 sketch here.  And second, the SUO Challenge, to make Mother's Day cards, here. 
The base is Melon Mambo card stock and I added some Beyond the Garden DSP, matting it with Wild Wasabi. I also used some Patterns DSP Brights Stack. I punched out the Wasabi circle with the XL 2 1/2 inch Circle punch. The Melon Mambo piece was punched with the XL 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle punch. The Pretty in Pink circle was cut out with the Circles#2 Big Shot die. And the Melon Mambo circle punched with the Large 1 3/8 inch Circle punch. I stamped the flower from Flower Fest twice with Versamark, using both Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi Stampin' emboss powders and heating them up. I colored in the flower with blender pens and Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Wild Wasabi Classic Ink Pads. I then punched that out with the Large 1 1/4 inch Circle punch. The entire set of circles was popped up with Stampin' dimensionals. I stamped Happy Mother's Day from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Melon Mambo and punched it out with the Word Window punch. Finally, some 1/4 inch Pretty in Pink ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Flower Fest and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi, Beyond the Garden DSP
Inks: Versamark, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Word Window punch, XL 2 1/2 inch Circle punch, XL 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle punch, Circles#2 Bigz die, Large 1 3/8 inch and 1 1/4 inch Circle punches, Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi Stampin' emboss powders, 1/4 inch Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' dimensionals

Gorgeous card! You should enter it into the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge for this week. They're doing a Mother's Day theme too.
