Fresh Summer Bloom

It's Friday!
It's also TAX FREE WEEKEND in Virginia!
You know what that means...........time to go SHOPPING! Ha!
Yes, time to check out the sales for school clothes and supplies, but it's also time to stock up on some great Stampin' Up! basics.

There's a whole list of your favorite Stampin' Up! products that are TAX FREE between today and Sunday, August 5th. I'm offering a special for all qualifying orders placed this weekend - check out the details at the end of this post.

My card today is done with the beautiful new stamp set Blooming with Kindness. (#126422 $16.95 clear)
As soon as I saw the New Catalog, I knew it would be on my first order. That flower is gorgeous!

Here I used a color combination of Old Olive, Midnight Muse, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. The background is done with the new Embossing Folder - Fancy Fan and the scalloped edge on the Designer Paper is done with the Large Scallop Edgelits Die.
The ribbon is the 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain in Daffodil Delight. I love how easy it is to tie and work with.
The punches used are the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circles and the Boho Blossom Punch for the little flower.

This card was one of my July Just Cards class cards and I swapped a few of these at Convention too. It really just makes me smile.
