Bloomin' Beautiful and Presto Patterns

This card uses the new Presto Patterns Specialty DSP along with the stamp set, Bloomin' Beautiful.  The card  base is Old Olive, folded at the top for a tent fold card.
There is a panel over the card base that has been punched with the Pinking Hearts border punch.  Although not in the current catalog, the punch, # 117649, is available as a write-in item.
The next layer is the Presto Specialty paper with the argyle pattern.  I sponged it with Regal Rose ink to bring up the embossed pattern.  Isn't it pretty?  There are 6 different patterns in the package of 12 sheets, available in the summer mini catalog, #117175, for $11.95.
The main image is from the Bloomin' Beautiful stamp set, #111490, fo $25.95.  It was stamped on Whisper White paper with black StazOn ink.  The Blossom definition was added with Old Olive ink stamped off once, and placed exactly where I wanted it with the Stamp-a-ma-jig. The flower was colored in with watercolor crayons and an Aqua Painter.
The bow was made from the lovely 5/8" Old Olive satin ribbon (#117292 @ $8.95).  It was pulled together with a styled silver brad from the Hodgepodge Hardware collection (#111325).
This card uses lots of fun items.  Hope you like it!
Thanks so much for visiting today!
