Flower Garden Swap

My oldest started high school today! I'm not real sure how I feel about it. I know that she is excited and will have a ton of fun but I can't believe that Abi is off to high school! Bitter sweet!!

Anyway, here's a card that I made for the Summer Mini swap that I was in. This is using the embossing folder Flower Garden. The embossing folder made it to the catalog! Yeah! I LOVE embossing folders! In fact Abi asked me the other day if I could make a card without using my Big Shot. I, of course, said yes but it will look better with using the Big Shot!!

Stamps: En Francais,All Holidays
Ink: Old Olive, Eggplant Envy
Cardstock: Old Olive, Eggplant Envy, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Ticket corner punch, Old Olive satin ribbon, sponge daubers, Flower Garden embossing folder

The greeting has retired but I'm sure you can find something to fit there instead! I adore purple and green together and this is my favorite combo!

Happy Stampin'!
