Very simple card. Background Pink Passion, DS paper is SU! Cutie Pie (?), which is retired. The sentiment was already stamped and mounted in my scrap baggie and I just punched out the Celery scallop circle and trimmed the DSP to the correct size (they were already in 1/2" strips). The Bashful Blue ribbon behind the scallop was a nice touch, IMO.

This was another made from scraps. The more I look at it the more I think I maybe inadvertently CASED a SU! advertisement or something that stuck in my mind, because I think it looks familiar. It's Kiwi Kiss for the scallop edge, Upsy Daisy stamp set for the sentiment (with Old Olive and Rose Red ink), and a pre-punched flower with textured purely Pomegranite. The button came off of a denim jacket that was Gracie's and then Ava's. I passed it on to Kyleigh and my sister and I decided that the jacket didn't even need the button since it was in the center of a flower that was already embroidered and looked cute without it.

Another very simple card. Kraft cardstock and ALL of the pieces were already cut/punched and in my scrap baggie. I just cut a bit off of the Soft Sky (retired) piece, adhered it together, and stamped the sentiment. I believe the star is Ballet Blue and the green is Wild Wasabi (retired). I stamped the sentiment with Sahara Sand ink.

Pretty in Pink piece was already cut, as was the 1/2" strip of Cutie Pie DSP. I just cut it to size and put the pre-stamped sentiment with Old Olive mat in the scallop circle, which is Bashful Blue. The celery ribbon scrap was in my scrap ribbon tin.

The green glitter circle panel AND the flower were already pre-stamped and cut out and in my scraps baggie. The Quickutz white tag was as well. I just stamped the "Best Wishes" with a $1.00 Michaels acrylic stamp set, added the yellow brad, and I was done. The circles were made using a small circle stamp that was in the SU! Simple Shapes set (retired). I stamped the circles in Versamark, embossed with Iredescent Ice embossing powder, and used my anywhere hole punch to punch out the centers. I backed the Certainly Celery panel with Pixie Pink cardstock. I used my corner rounder on the edges. The flower is also in a retired SU! set (Shapes and Shadows), which was stamped on Pretty in Pink CS with Pretty in Pink ink.
