For my card today, I chose items from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. 
          002
Everyday Enchantment DSP sets the stage for this everyday ‘HELLO’ card.  In your catalog is suggests using the In-Colors, Very Vanilla and Soft Suede, I paired it with Real Red, Old Olive and Very Vanilla.   I thought the occasion called for an envelope today, these images were stamped in Real Red with Old Olive dots and a Pool Party butterfly from Beautiful Wings.
Looking closer ~
        011
After applying my larger square panels, I attached a piece of Real Red ribbon in a diagonal direction with a stripped piece of the same DSP pack on top of that.  Stamped an image from the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set in Old Olive placing snippets of flowers from the same DSP after all edges were sponged with Crumb Cake Ink.  Everything was mounted on Naturals Ivory paper.  The ‘HELLO’ is from the Elementary Elegance Stamp Set.
I brought to the inside a little of the outside ~
                     004
All items were popped up with the use of dimensionals while three Old Olive brads were used for added texture.

Ooh, want to go on a picnic after seeing this lovely summery card Linda! My bum might get a tad cold though, so I shall just look at this delightful card instead and dream of warmer weather!
