The Oh So Succulent stamp set was given to us in our goodie bag at the On Stage event. While I'll admit this stamp set would not have made my personal shopping list, I'm sure I'll still end up using quite a bit, as is usually the case with stamp sets I get gifted. It does include some pretty neat sentiments, including a Mother's Day one, which I was in need of. It's the one I picked here for my card, which was also inspired by the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch #307. I swapped the heart for flowers, and I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits dies for the two overlapping shapes. The beautiful patterned papers are part of the Carried Away Design Paper pack, offered as a free item during Sale-A-Bration. I picked the papers that did not have hot air balloon-related images and went fromt there.
To embellish the bottom of the card, I got the idea of pulling out another SAB item - the Delicate Details stamp set (one of my personal faves this year - borders are always great to embellish projects). I stamped the scallop border and handcut it, then I added a bit of lace at the bottom peeking out. (I believe some of the In Color lace trims from last year are still available in the Clearance Rack.) I stamped a second border on top of it, and I added pearls to each scallop. A metal-rimmed pearl was also added to the top of the ribbon on my main panel.
