Betsy's Blossoms In Color II!

Here's another card I made as a set sample before my last workshop where we used Betsy's Blossoms for one of our Make 'n Takes.  I've found this set to be as versatile as it is bold and fun!  Today's card doesn't use the birdie but instead uses the largest (about 2-1/2" diameter) of the three flower stamps in the set.  I've seen this flower used so many ways, so it in itself is also very versatile.  That's always a plus!!
My color scheme is the new In Colors for 2012-2014:  Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit.  I chose Gumball Green cardstock for the card base and then randomly (sort of ) stamped the leaf in Gumball Green, the medium flower in Primrose Petals and the small flower cluster in Summer Starfruit.

I stamped the large flower with Midnight Muse onto Whisper White cardstock and then quickly cut it out with my Paper Snips; I am not one who yearns to cut things out but this went very fast and painlessly, lol!  I stamped and cut out another medium flower in Primrose Petals and stamped a small Summer Starfruit flower and punched it out with the 1/2" Circle Punch!  (Always love those punches!!)  These were each layered with Dimensionals and the Starfruit flower was centered with a small Rhinestone for a little bling!
Oops, I forgot to mention that I attached some of the new In Color 3/8" Primrose Petals Stitched Satin ribbon about a third of the way up from the bottom of the card; that ribbon is just beautiful and comes in all five of the new In Colors!  For the greeting, I stamped the Thank You from the Itty Bitty Banners set and die cut it with the Bitty Banners Framelits, and added to the Midnight Muse flower with Dimensionals. 

I love how fresh and summer-y this card turned out!  I must say that I love working with the new Firm Foam Ink Pads from Stampin' Up!  They are just wonderful from the ease of inking up your stamp to the fantastic coverage you get, even on solid image stamps like this set.  I can't wait to get them all, I like them SO MUCH!!  You really must try them, you'll like them!!

Thanks for visiting today!  Have a great week!
