A Fabulous Flower and Friend!

Today's card started off completely different than how it ended up.  I was going to do a sketch challenge but wound up doing my own thing with a few of my favorite new goodies.  Somehow I am late to the party with the whole Succulent Garden DSP.  It is beautiful and it uses some of my favorite (and retiring) in-colors.  Here is my card:

This is a square card, not something I usually make.  The base is Tip Top Taupe with a sheet of the Succulent Garden DSP layered on top then a piece of Mint Macaron embossed on top of that.  Can we take a second to talk about this embossing folder, Petal Burst.  How perfect is this with all of Stampin' Up's flowers?  Speaking of flowers I decided to die cut the flower from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets, the top part in Sweet Sugarplum, the bottom also in Mint Macaron.  I stamped and die cut the banner from the Banners For You Bundle.  During Sale-A-Bration I really stocked up on those bundles that had been on my radar and I am so excited to have so many brand new toys!  I finished the card off with a Sweet Sugarplum bow on my flower stem.  I also made a coordinating envelope with the 2015-2017 In Color Envelope Paper:

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Head over to SSI to how some of the other Designers are using our embossing folders and which ones are their favorites!
