Mixed Bunch Thank You Card

I really like how today's card turned out.  I CASEd it from Lynn at LW Designs.  I love the color combo that she came up with on this card.  I would have never thought to put Cherry Cobbler with Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, & Peach Parfait.  Actually, she used Pear Pizzazz instead of Lucky Limeade, but I wanted the green that was used in the designer paper.  I also didn't use as much designer paper as she did, made the leaves with the Blossom Punch (p. 17 in the Occasions Mini) instead of the Blossoms Builder Punch, and added the Framed Tulip Impressions Folder (p. 218) to the peach layer. 

The flower comes from the Mixed Bunch set (p. 17 in the Mini), and the greeting is from my go-to set, Sincere Salutations (p. 160).  I inked the flower first with Peach Parfait ink, and then used the "Rock 'N Roll" technique by rolling the edges of the stamp into Cherry Cobbler ink.  I stamped the flower again on Lucky Limeade card stock in Lucky Limeade ink.  I then cut two of the flower petals off to make the leaves.  The flower is popped up with dimensionals (the leaves are not).

The designer paper is Everyday Enchantment DSP (p. 7 in the SAB brochure).  You can get this designer paper free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration (SAB), which ends March 31.  Other items I used that you can get free during SAB are the brad from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack (p. 7 in SAB brochure), and the Designer Frames Impressions Folders (p. 13 in the SAB brochure & p. 215 in the big catty).  The saying was punched out with the XL Oval Punch (p. 212).  I sponged the edges of the oval with Peach Parfait ink before attaching it into the frame.  A more complete list of the supplies I used is below the picture.
