Another Hallmark CASE!

Here is another card that I copied from Hallmark--but made it better with Stampin Up! supplies!

Their version....

I really loved the bright colors and the fun flowers.  This is my version...

I used the mixed bunch stamp set--which by the way will carry over into the new catalog!--with the matching punch.  After laying the punched out flowers on the background I embossed the entire thing using the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Makes it almost look like it is a piece of textured designer paper and not separate elements.  Of course I did add the extra element of the sentiment since I didn't think you would be able to read the sentiment through the embossing.

Stamps:  Mixed Bunch, Thoughts and Prayers
Paper:  Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush, Whisper White
Ink: Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush
Other: Square Lattice embossing folder--flower punch.

The vibrant colors and bold design make me want to keep looking at this card (it puts Hallmark to shame).
