Fabulous Florets

I recently had fun visiting with my SU! demo Deanna and playing with some of her new stamps & punches. This is the Fabulous Florets set found in the summer mini catalog. I stamped the image and leaves several times with Memento black ink, then colored with Copics, hand cut, and popped up the images with dimensionals. I created the vertical panel with SU! Poppy Parade dp and stamped the card base with a retired favorite "stitched" background stamp. The ribbon was tan, but I colored it with a Copic marker to match it to the color theme of my card. The image was matted with garden green cardstock, and the stem was stamped using Memento Cottage ivy ink......even though most of it was covered up! LOL I'll add a sentiment to this when I need to use it.
The temps are going to top 100 degrees today here in PA, so I'm going to hibernate indoors again! Summer is still 12 days away! Hello?!?!?
Have a fabulous day and stay cool!

Carol, Another beauty. I love the stitched background and that stamp is just so nice. It did not excite me when I saw it, but now you've made it look impossible to avoid getting it. The ribbon looks so pretty. Talk soon. I'll email you later on today.
