Here's my card to kick off Preview Week.  This week is all about Designer's Choice and Flower Shop is one of my FAVORITE new sets!

  1. The base is yummy Coastal Cabana, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, folded in half.
  2. I stamped the loopy flower in Flower Shop with Coastal Cabana Ink across the bottom.
  3. I ran the front thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder for some texture.
  4. I cut the Whisper White Apothecary Accent and stamped the greeting from Really Good Greetings in Coastal Cabana towards the bottom (and cut off the excess).
  5. I punched the In Color Designer Paper Stacks of Strawberry Slush with the Blossom and Pansy Punches, then layered them together.  The flower is held with the Antique Brad.

Love how SIMPLE this card is, but it really is pretty!
