A Happy Mixed Bunch

Good morning everyone! I am pre-posting once again as we will have another early morning. The first two games did not go our way. The boys are playing teams that are ranked very high in their states where they come from. They are definitely getting some great experience by playing against some super skilled kids! And their spirits seem to be positive despite the lopsided scores of their games. I just hope the boys can score some goals. Regardless, they have been having a great time in really awesome weather! We even got to go to the zoo! FUN!

Today's card is one that I had my stamp club ladies do last week. I really liked how this one turned out, too. Nice and spring-like! I took a piece of Whisper White and ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and I only embossed the top part of that piece. I stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases on the bottom part of that piece and rounded the bottom right hand corner with the corner rounder. Then I took a strip f Baja Breeze card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim die and adhered that to this panel to separate the dots from the greeting. Then I tied a piece of Calypso Coral ribbon from the SAB Everyday Enchantment ribbon and brad pack. Then I glued a piece of Calypso Coral card stock the back of this panel that had been punched with the dotted ribbon scallop punch. This panel was adhered to a card base of Whisper White that had the bottom right hand corners punched. Then I stamped the flower from Mixed Bunch in Calypso Coral onto Whisper White and punched it out with the Blossom punch. I also punched another flower from Calypso Coral. I adhered the two punched flowers together and slightly curled the flower petals up to give it a little more dimension. Then I punched a 3/4" circle from Whisper White and a flower using the Blossom Bouquet triple layer punch from Daffodil Delight. These were adhered together and a Calypso Coral brad was put through the middle. Then I popped it up onto the flower and the flower was popped up on the card. I know this sounds like a lot but the card was pretty easy to put together! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
