FMS30 – Island Floral

Well, I went REALLY easy with this card!  Isn't that Big Shot wonderful?  I haven't used Island Floral Die in a while, so pulled it out to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge this week!  The layout just screamed FLOWER to me!  I haven't played along in SO long…missed doing their challenges!

 

 

Here's my card!

 

 

I started with Melon Mambo cardstock.  I layered on some YUMMY Summer Smooches Designer Paper…love that Chevron design!  I added Basic Black cardstock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  Then cut the Island Floral from Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo center with Lucky Limeade leaves behind it, embossed with the Snow Burst Impressions Folder.  I added Summer Smooches brad (only available THIS month…it will NOT be in the new catalog, so make sure you order it!)  Finally, I stamped Thanks So Much with Basic Black on Whisper White and cut the flag end.  It's from Three Little Words stamp set.

 

Hope you enjoy!  Have a great weekend!
