When the Annual Catalog came out last June, one of the first stamps that caught my eye was Quint-Essential Flower. I loved that it coordinated with so many different punches, but I never got around to buying it. Fast forward to SAB time...lucky me, it's one of the free products just waiting to be earned! I was so excited and snatched that baby right up. It hasn't disappointed! I've been going through my list of color combinations, and this was the perfect stamp to use with a new combination of colors. I love the layers that all the punches create.
This card also features the Designer Builder Brads from the Spring Catalog. These were a gift I received at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference in January, and they've just been sitting on my desk ever since (why haven't I been using them?!?) It is the perfect center for this flower, and I was even able to punch out the center of the flower to use in the brad. How fun is it to be able to put anything you want inside that brad? I love being able to customize accessories!
