Stampin' Up! Fabulous Florets Anniversary Card

Wow! It's startling to me how long its been since I've had a chance to do some crafting.  We moved form Nebraska to Tucson, AZ at the end of last month and I'm just now getting settled to the point where I can stamp again.  It feels good!
I needed to make a few anniversary cards for my downline and here's the first one I came up with.  I love the look of the Beyond the Garden Suite projects in the Stampin' Up! Idea and Catalog.  (Pages 106-107) Since the weather here is so lovely it's really gotten me in a spring time mood.  The colors in this suite are really spring-y.  I hope you enjoy it.
The foliage image from the Fabulous Florets stamp set was embossed using Melon Mambo embossing powder on Melon Mambo card stock.  I love that look.  The flower image was also stamped and embossed with Melon Mambo embossing powder but on the same designer series pattern from Beyond the Garden as the background panel.  I thought it was a nice way to take the coordination of products just one step further. This technique is called Paper Piecing. 
I also like the "here's to you" sentiment for an Stampin' Up! anniversary.  Each member of my downline is very special to me, and I want to do a better job of letting them know that this year.
