Perfect Pennants - Life doesn't have to be perfect

Hello, thank you for reading today.  I want to share with you one of the stamp sets that in my opinion, is very inspirational. The stamp sets that are featured are Perfect Pennants ( Annual Catalog 16) and Petite Petals ( Annual Catalog 125)

This stamp set (pictured below) 

has great versatility. It is perfect for guy cards with the Star, Make a Wish and the two background stamps. The star can be used for a military appreciation card. However, I chose to make a very girly card. 

Card Recipe

Stamp Sets
Perfect Pennants (AC p 16)
Petite Petals (AC p 125)

All Abloom Paper stack (AC p 185)
Pool Party
Whisper White

Ink Pads:
Strawberry Slush
Pool Party 
Coastal Cabana 

 Rhinestone Basic Jewels (AC p 209)
Petite Petals Punch (AC 219)

To create the card, cut a whisper white square. 3/4 of the way from the bottom, stamp 'Life doesn't have to be perfect..' sentiment.  Using a whisper white sheet, stamp three flowers with the Petite Petals in Strawberry Slush, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana. Punch these out with the coordinating Petite Petals Punch.  Adhere Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of each flower.  Cut a banner out of the All Abloom paper stack.
Assemble the card by adhering the sentiment sheet with snail. Adhere the All Abloom banner with snail to the right corner of the sentiment.  Place the petite petals in a cluster of three near the sentiment- I chose the left corner to balance the banner. You can make a coordinating envelope with a few more petite petals stamp and punching a few flowers from the All Abloom DSP stack. 

The perfect pennants also has a coordinating product if you have a Big Shot! Banners Framelits (p 231) fit the sentiments perfectly. I only just now bought the framelits (after 5 months of having the set, I know, I'm a slacker :P ) Be sure to check back to see this set with the Banners Framelits!
