ABC New to you challenge

Good Evening!  I made this card for this week's ABC blog challenge and the challenge is to create a card using something 'New to You'.  I actually used two things that are new to me.  I used the window framelits and the stamp set.  I recently bought this retired stamp set and this is the first time I'm using it.

I stamped the flowers using baja breeze and soft suede ink and then they were cut out using the window framelits.  I also cut another window framelit layer and embossed that using the square lattice embossing folder. 

The designer series paper I used is also retired.  I used the same sheet of dsp, but the one piece is flipped over and sometimes doing this ensures that the papers will match nicely.

My very vanilla card base is dry embossed towards the top portion of my card using my simply score tool board and the bottom part of my very vanilla card has two rows of paper piercing.

My sentiment was stamped and punched using the large and scallop oval punches and for this card I decided to use use the crochet ribbon since it's the same vanilla color and I thougth it would match nicely.  I also added 3 pearls on my image panel in the upper right hand corner. 

I hope you liked my card and there's still time to play along in the ABC card challenges this week!  Thanks for stopping by!
