FTL 141

Good morning, Friends! I just can not believe that my son only has four more days of school! He is so excited! My parents and my brother will be visiting over the holiday and they should get here on his last day of school so he really can't wait!! We have just had such a busy weekend with the soccer tournament (which they did o.k. with) and then baseball in the evenings. We really felt like we didn't get a weekend. But it was so much fun! And, thankfully, Saturday and Sunday were the nicest days that we had all week! I got a pretty good sunburn! So now it's time to make sure the house is "livable" - lol! But not before I go and get a pedicure!!

Today's card was inspired by the layout at Clean & Simple - FTL 141. A great layout and one that will be used time and again. I used the Flower Fest stamp set and cut out the different layers of the flower. The scallop punch will punch out the flower but I liked the look of it being cut out instead. The layers of the flower are popped up to add a little dimension. Not a new idea but the first for me! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Flower Fest, Happy Greetings; Paper- Pear Pizzazz, Concord Crush, Whisper White; Ink- Pear Pizzazz, Concord Crush; Accessories- Pear Pizzazz poly twill ribbon, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, scallop edge border punch, silver brad, sponge dauber dimensionals
