Summer Splash Birthday

Do you like the cute octopus used on today's card?  It is from the summer mini catalog, and available only until August 31st.  So, don't wait to get your favorites that will be retiring soon.

Today's card starts with Pumpkin Pie cardstock followed by a layer of Pretty in Pink and a piece of Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I embossed these two matte layers with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and added a strip of Melon Mambo 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon.  I stamped the octopus in Melon Mambo ink and then punched it out using the 2 1/2" Circle Punch and put it on the card using dimensionals, and also tied it onto the ribbon with Linen Thread.  

The Summer Mini Catalog is full of great products for summer, as well as a lot of items for masculine projects as well.  If you don't have your own copy of the mini catalog, you can view it by clicking on the link under catalogs in the left hand column of my blog.
