SSC258 Challenge

There's just no substitue for natural light for photos, and I have very little of it in my house.  So, I decided to try taking the picture outside and what a difference!  The colors look much more true to life.  Now I just need plenty of sunny, calm days!

This card is for my niece, Nicole.  I love the vibrant colors in the new Floral District DSP, so I decided to pair them with the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge.  I usually don't make square cards because I don't have the proper envelope.  Since I'll give her this card in person this year, I made a matching envelope using Jackie Topa's awesome instructions and measurements

I used the measurements for the 4-1/2" square card (see her file with loads of measurements), so it's a tad too large, but still works fine.

Here's everything I used:

Mixed Bunch
Create A Cupcake

Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
     5x5 for Scalloped Square
Whisper White Card Stock
     4x8 Body of Card
     Scraps for Flowers and Greeting
Floral District DSP
     4x2 Card Layer
     8x8 Envelope

Rich Razzleberry Stamp Pad
Baja Breeze Stamp Pad

Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die
Blossom Punch
3/4" Circle Punch
Word Window Punch
Decorative Label Punch (Envelope)
Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon
Stampin' Dimensionals
