Summer Mini Catalog Sneak Peek

My pre-order from the Summer Mini Catalog arrived so I used the stamp set Fabulous Florets on this card. The Summer Mini comes out May 1st. It also was made for two challenges and a sketch. First, the Clean and Simple Stamping FTL#136 here. Second, PPA#89, Flowers, here. And finally, the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge#146 here, using Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point.
My base is Pacific Point card stock. I added some Pumpkin Pie DSP from the Patterns DSP Brights Stack. On Whisper White I stamped the flowers from Fabulous Florets in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point. I stamped the frame from Four Frames in Pacific Point and added the sentiment from Because I Care in Real Red. I punched that out with the XL Decorative Label punch and popped it up with Stampin' dimensionals. I threaded some Pacific Point card stock thru the Pumpkin Pie button and adhered that with a Glue dot. Finally, some 5/8 inch Real Red grosgrain ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Fabulous Florets and Because I Care, Four Frames
Papers: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Patterns DSP Brights Stack
Inks: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point
Accessories: XL Decorative Label punch, (retired) Pumpkin Pie button, Stampin' dimensionals, Glue dot, 5/8 inch Real Red grosgrain
