Stampin' Up Beautiful Bouquet

I haven't taken much time to stamp this summer but I had to make time to create a card for a special person.  Growing up, Aunt Beulah lived next door to me.  We will be celebrating her 90th birthday this weekend and we've been asked to share out favorite memories of Beulah.  One of my many memories is of summertime and my sweet aunt tending to all of the flowers bordering her house and fenceline.  For some reason I specifically remember the Portulaca flowers that she always grew.  I don't have a Portulaca stamp (shocking!)  but I do have this new stamp set from Stampin' Up called Beautiful Bouquet.  I followed a past sketch from Mojo Monday which, I'm sad to say, is not longer holding challenges.

PAPER: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Powder Pink
INK: Berry Burst, Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Fig, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Powder Pink
