The 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog is my favorite mini to date! It has so many great stamp sets and accessories, and this card features some of those. The color combo came right out of the Color Coach. I love the Valentine Defined set because it is so versatile that it can be used all through the year!
After running the Blushing Bride paper through the Big Shot in the Framed Tulips embossing folder, I trimmed off along the embossed outside edges and mounted it on the Sahara Sand. I embossed another piece with the same folder using Perfect Plum paper, and cut off a 1" strip on each side. I then took one of the strips and, using the Ornament Punch, punched out a shape resembling a flower pot. Easy peasy, and this card could be used for almost any occasion: birthday, wedding, anniversary...there's no limit to its versatility! However, there IS a limit to how long this stamp set is available - only through April 30. Remember that you can order online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through my online store; just click the link on the right side of the blog page.
