The card I am sharing today is made using the new Avant Garden stamp set available from the 4th January 2017 in the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

This card was inspired by one I found on Pinterest by Amy Koenders. To see her original click on this link – https://stampwithamyk.com/2016/12/15/stampin-up-avant-garden-sneak-peek-for-the-happy-stampers-blog-hop/
I stamped the bold flower in 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation Elegant Eggplant ink in a rough semi-circle then filled in the blank spaces with 1st and 2nd generation Pool Party ink.
The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Pool Party ink onto scrap Whisper White cardstock and die cut using the Stitched Frames Dies. I added a 2nd generation Elegant Eggplant stamp image to the base of the sentiment. I die cut a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles dies a tiny bit bigger to mount the sentiment onto.
I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the stamped panel and tied a small bow. The panel was then added to a layer of Elegant Eggplant cardstock using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. The sentiment was mounted over the thread using Dimensionals. The entire topper was then added to a Pool Party card base using Dimensionals.
I love the Elegant Eggplant and Pool Party together, such a classy looking card.
