Stampin' Up Sale-A-Bration countdown day 5: Petal Parade card

Good Morning!!  I have been having fun getting ready for Sale-A-Bration. This is a card that uses several images from the Petal Parade stamp set. I really like the combination of flowers and designs in this Sale-A-Bration stamp set. It really allows you to mix and match the stamps to create many different combinations, has a retro geometric feel to me.

Is this countdown getting you all excited too??? Now on to the card!! Boy I sure am  :))

I really like the color combination! I have been dying to use the new ribbon!  :)  It has a neat texture on it like sort of burlap. It's called Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon it's on page 18 in the new Everyday mini catalog. I tied a little piece of Pool Party twine  around the ribbon that is a part of the Sale-A-bration Accessory pack.  Makes it kinda fun, but not too bulky for easy mailing.

The scallop on the bottom adds a little softness. The 'my friend' stamp, well I have used that over and over again, it's from the Six-Sided Sampler.

This is the inside of the card.   Since I had my stamps in the ready position (ha-ha)I  decided to  finish off this card by continuing the pattern on the inside. What do you think?

My dear friend Denise sent me a card the other day with a 30 day challenge to send out one card for the next 30 days. I am gonna start today. What a great idea who doesn't LOVE to get a handmade card in the mail! So I am gonna pass on the same challenge to you. If you decide to take the challenge to send out a card once a day for the next 30 days, email me or leave a comment, would love to hear from you.
