Happy Friday and Happy Summer, Everyone!  Today is the first official day of Summer!  How exciting!  I hope that your Summer is off to a GREAT start and that you have LOTS of plans for LOTS of FUN in the sun over the next three months (stamping and crafting included)!

Even though Spring is over and I thought I was done showcasing flowers, flowers, flowers this week, I took on retrosketches challenge #68.  My first attempt to this sketch was good, but I thought that my 2nd attempt was even better! 

For this card, I used a B-side of one of the Birthday Basics Designer Series Papers.  It is so fun and playful to me, AND it features one of my favorite colors--Gumball Green!  I also used one of my favorite flower stamp sets--Flower Shop--and one of my new favorite punches--Pansy Punch.  I've got lots of favorites...what can I say?!

On this 2nd try, it was important for me to stay true to the sketch, and I REALLY like how it turned out.  I even sacrificed 9 Candy Dots on one card, so you know I had to be serious about it.  I just LOVE what those Candy Dots do to a project...priceless!  

Be sure to check out my FREE STUFF OFFER to get some Candy Dots of your own!

TIP:  Before I go, I want to share one tip.  When Stampin' Up! was discontinuing the 1-1/4" Square Punch this past April, all of us demonstrators were up in arms because so many of us used it regularly to make flags and banners.  But thanks to my director, she discovered that we can use the new Hexagon Punch in its place.  Check out the picture below to see how its done.  

If you need one of these great punches or any of the products that I used to create this card for your stampin' studio, you will find links to all of the products below that will take you directly to my Online Store.  It's your go-to place to get ALL of the Stampin' Up! products that you need and want!  

Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see the 2nd Runner Up.  Until next time, have a great day and happy crafting!


Here are the products I used:
