I made this card combining Create with Connie and Mary color challenge 210 and The Friday Mashup 68.
The colors for CCMC210 are Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, So Saffron and Pool Party, and the Friday Mashup calls for us to use the sketch but also use a summertime theme. When I saw this color combo, I immediately knew the stamp set I wanted to use and that was A Flower For All Seasons. This cute watering can with flowers and little toad are so sweet and cute and doesn't it say summertime? Especially paired with the gingham designer paper background. I don't have any stamps that have a "froggy" sentiment, so "so happy for you" was about as close as I could get. To tie the summery flower element together I embossed the gingham background with my Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and then added a simple little punched flower to the main panel and tag. The main panel is popped up with dimensionals and then I faux stitched around the edges for a little something extra.
Here's a list of supplies I used......
