It is July already.  Time sure does fly these days.  I'm back today with another clean and simple card.  I just love all the flowers that you can make with dies and punches.  I used three different punches to make this flower.

Cardstock - I used SU Cherry Cobbler and the kraft and white is from my stock
Stamp/Ink - The stamp is from the SU So Happy For You set and it is stamped in Cherry Cobbler
Punches - Flower: SU Blossum and 5-Petal Flower and McGill Flowers-Petite Petals. I also used SU 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" circle punches
Embossing Folder - Sizzix for SU Stripes
Ribbon -  SU 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon in Riding Hood Red
Brad - from my stash

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:

Paper Crafting Journey Challenge - Feeling Krafty?

CAS-ual Friday's Challenge - #59 - Use 2 Circles

Dynamic Duos Challenge - #9 - Color Duos (Crumb Cake and Your Choice)

Simply Stampin' Challenge - #66 - Clean and Simple

Thanks for dropping by and have a blessed day.
