PP98 - Summertime - Bright Blossoms & Summer Smooches

The Paper Player is having a Summertime Challenge Theme, PP98 and the picture alone looks so much fun that I had to join.

For me summertime is alot of things, beach, pool, ice cream, and outdoor flowers, but since I've been helping gardening, which is what I do for the summertime, I focused on flower for this challenge.

Here is my card:
This new DSP, Summer Smooches has such beautiful colors and I love the flower image on it along with the red polka dots. As far as color scheme, it was the Dynamic Duos website that gave me my inspiration for this card for the Island Indigo and Bright Red, but added green for the flower focus. Very fun colors.

The stamp set is called Bright Blossoms which has the cutest flowers and vases. Inks used weres Bright Red and Pear Pizzaz (retired) and for the sentiment I used stamp set called: Perfect Words (retired).

Other tools used were: Blossom Bouquet Punch (retired) and Sizzlits Die called Paper Doily.

Whisper White Satin Ribbon was used to make this tiny bow on the side and for the sketch design, I used a previous Mojo Monday sketch which is below.
For this card, I used several stampin dimensionals starting from under the DSP base and than again under the Paper Doily and finally under the 1 1/2 " circle. Hope you enjoy and if you haven't joined yet, stop by at the challenge by clicking here over at The Paper Players. It's quite fun!
