90 Degrees!

Now THIS is my kind of weather. We are finally supposed to hit 90 degrees today. I love the sunshine and warm temps. It makes me feel so happy!  I wanted to quickly post this card so I can take the kids outside and play. This card is for the challenges at Freshly Made Sketches and colourQ.
I substituted Primrose Petals for Ruby Red. It's been gone so long I couldn't remember exactly what it looks like but I thought Primrose was a good match by looking at the color on my computer screen.
I made my own DSP by stamping the Secret Garden flowers in Black StazOn and then using my blender pen to color them in.  I added a piece of vellum under the ribbon at the bottom just for a little opaque effect. 
Stamp Sets: Secret Garden, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Black StazOn, Calypso Coral Certainly Celery, Primrose Petals
Tools: Scallop Border Punch, hole punch, blender pen
Accessories: Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon
