Today we're Creating a Quick All Occasion Card wtih Stampin'Up! Full of Love Stamp Set.

Here's today's card...
What makes this a Quick card is that it's all done with a single stamp and the you simply color the flowers & leaves to coordinate with whatever color you choose for your background.
I chose the new Sweet Sorbet In Color Designer Series Paper--I love plaid and this one whispered "perfect combo" with this stamp set. So I obviously chose to feature that color as one of the major flower colors and then combined some supporting colors like Pool Party, Starry Sky, and Daffodil Delight and we have the perfect summer bouquet.
Coloring with the Blends (alcohol markers) is one of my favorite embellishments--the color just flows so smoothly and alwasy turns out brilliant and bright!
Instead of using the matching ribbon I chose a darker hue--so it didn't blend into the background but rather snapped into the foreground in a very pert way giving the whole card its zip.
I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.
Stop back Thursday and see what we're creating then!
