Life's Moments card

I don't do a lot of pinks but I was just in a pink mood today. Maybe the greens will off set the pink enough so that you don't feel like you've got to find some of that pink medicine for your stomach! lol

For this card, you use pink patterned paper from the Brights Collection Paper Stack(#117155). Cut the background paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2," the stripe paper(which is the reverse side of the other pink) to 3 1/4 x 2 1/2." The green layer is 3 x 5."

Use the scallop trim border punch(#118402) to make the border on the green and the pink stripe. Only punch one end because the other end is even with the edge of the card.

Tie a bow in a strip of Old Olive 1/2" grosgrain striped (#113883) ribbon and adhere it to the center portion of the card, on top of the layers.

Stamp 3 flowers from Printed Petals (#120444) stamp set in Melon Mambo, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette classic ink. Cut the flowers out. The center flower can be punched with the 1 3/4" scallop circle (#119854) punch.

Punch a hole in the center of the flowers and add a small brad.

Using Certainly Celery cardstock, cut a framelit from the labels collection(#125598) and your Big Shot.

Stamp your greeting on the label frame in Melon Mambo ink and use a sponge dauber to ink the outside edge with Melon Mambo ink. The saying here is from the Elements of Style(#120045) stamp set.

Place SU! Dimensionals(#104430) on the back of the framelit and adhere above the ribbon. Place onto your card base and put a special note on the inside of your card.
