A Blossom Flower for You!

I absolutely love the new In-Colors!  They are bright, bold, and they coordinate perfectly!  I began with the thought of making a clean and simple birthday card, but ended up using two punches and the banner framelits.  It is still simple, but added extra items that gave the card a little more dimension and pow.  I could use the card as a ‘Just Because’ or even as a ‘Birthday’  card.  I cannot wait to put it in the mail. =)

To make the vase I used the Petite Pennants punch and cut the tops off.  The melon mambo adds depth and dimenstion to the tempting turquoise cardstock layered together.  One of the main reasons why I joined Stampin’ Up! was because of the ease of coordination of all their paper.
