OCC Sketch Challenge

It is time for another new challenge at Our Creative Corner.
Our hostess this week is the uber talented Meihsia Liu and she has a great sketch challenge for us this week:

 Design a card/project according to the sketch. Turn or flip it any way and use any theme you want. Please also include a ribbon bow on your project. 

I decided to showcase a retiring stamp set, this one is called "Flower Fest" and those of you who visit here often know that I really like this set.
I stamped the flower roses onto some Calypso Coral card stock using versmark and embossed with some white embossing powder. For each flower I stamped and embossed twice. I cut out the center and added it to the bottom with a dimesional.
The leaves are stamped and embossed onto Wild Wasabi card stock.

The base of the card is pool Party card stock and the DSP is from the Domestic Goddess paper pack.
I used the top note die for my main panel and the sentiment is from the "Occasional Quotes" stamp set.
I added some white satin ribbon and tied a bow across the embossed pool party strip.
I finished it off with some basic pearls in the corners.

Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog 
to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun challenge. 
I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do, don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
