Howdy folks! Today's card is a mixture of old and new! I've got some oldish? stamp sets - but not terribly old - Delightful Dozen and Secret Garden. I've got some new colors - Bermuda Bay (although, technically it's a comeback!) and Coastal Cabana - mixed in with some not so new colors - Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Primrose Petals. I really love that about Stampin' Up's color collections. You can easily mix and match them - they will typically "go" together. They've made it almost impossible to come up with an icky color combo.
I also threw in our new Modern Mosaic embossing folder. Be prepared to see a lot of this on my blog - I just love it! It adds a classic element and it's so hot right now!
For the flower - I simply embossed it with Black embossing powder and used a Blender Pen and the Coastal Cabana ink pad to color it. I went back with a Bermuda Bay Marker to color in the stamens (is that what they are called? - I'm having flashbacks to my 7th grade science class. And unfortunately - that was a very long time ago. We won't go into that tho!)
I like how the ribbon adds a splash of color - but am wishing some of my new ribbon was here already - I'm dying to play with the new Chevron ribbon.
