Old favorite gets an update!

This card might look familiar to some of my readers. Remember this post? Well my mom needed a card to give out and that design happened to be one of her favorites so I re-did it using some new products and colors.

Here are some of the changes I made:
Instead of using Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze for a color scheme, I went with Pumpkin Pie and one of the soon-to-be release In Colors-Melon Mambo. Very summery!

The background paper used in this card is from the new Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series. I used some of the 'less busy' prints so that they wouldn't take away from my main image.

For accessories, I used Fire Circle Rhinestone brads- in orange (a very close match to the Pumpkin Pie), and the new Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon. TIP: I opted for using the solid side of the ribbon by facing the polka dots in and tying a simple knot which was glued down so they couldn't be exposed :).

Happy Stampin'!

I LOVE this card. Can you tell me where you used the stamp set. I see where you used the embossing die.
