This month's theme is Floral. Stampin' Up! has a wide variety of floral stamps to choose from. One of my favorite suites from the new Annual Catalog is the Pressed Petals suite so I knew that was exactly what I wanted to use for this hop.
The Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper is a specialty paper. It's a little thinner than SU!'s normal DSP, but it is still a nice weight. The prints are amazing! For my card collection I used the DSP page that includes pre-printed card layers. These were designed for quick and easy cards!
My first card used a small 3"x3"square of the DSP mounted on a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock. I embellished the card with the Rococo Rose Ruffled Ribbon and a Washi Tape flower. Yes, you read that right! The flower embellishment is made with the Pressed Petals Washi Tape. This tape is different than others. The petals actually peel off the roll one petal at a time! Giving you the ability to design your flower exactly how you want it!

The next card used another panel of the DSP. I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow and added the Designer Elements in the corners. Easy peasy!
This last card is my favorite! The flowers are just so beautiful that all I needed to do was add a small piece of ribbon and a sentiment. The flowers on this DSP are gorgeous!
