The card base is River Rock, as is the ribbon knotted through the jumbo eyelets. And the layer behind the bench is Close to Cocoa.
I hope you find time to send a card to somebody today!

I think the hardware and poly-twill old olive ribbon looks great with the red gingham.
The card itself has a layer of Bashful Blue on Certainly Celery, and the red strip is pierced. The scallop is out of Summer Picnic paper too. The sentiment comes from the stamp set Hi & Hello.
The wasabi card is textured, which I love! And the saying comes from One Smart Cookie, which is a great complimentary set to Tart & Tangy.
I can see using this card as an invitation to a great summer picnic!

The strip of Orchid Opulence is pierced, with some striped Pumpkin Pie grosgrain tied around the front and knotted. The flower, from Friendly Flowers, is punched out with the scallop punch and stuck on with dimensionals.
I think this is a friendly card that's full of life. Hope you have a wonderful day!

All of the stamps are from the Essence of Life set in the Occasions Mini Collection.
The Whisper White top layer was brayered with Soft Sky, then stamped with the floral image over the top of it in Basic Gray. The designer paper is Spring Break.

The chick was stamped first. Then the egg was cut out and placed over the chick's eggshell to make it look like it's peeking out from behind. The flower in the build-a-brad came from the same Porcelain Prints designer paper as the egg, and was attached through the Confetti Cream and Blue Bayou layers.
On the side of the card, the Blue Bayou scallop was made with a slit punch. It's hard to see the pierced holes in each scallop, but they're there!
A strip of paper from the same pack has some double-stitched Blue Bayou ribbon with a flower slide (from the new silver hodgepodge hardware kit!) on it.
Look below for more ideas using A Good Egg.
That's also some of the new Old Olive poly-twill ribbon offered in the Occasions Mini. It's soft and easy to work with.
The real red flower is from the Boho Blossom punch, with a 1/4" circle of Bashful Blue card stock for the center.

I used A Good Egg stamp set and stamped the flowers, circles and other design in Rose Red ink all over the Pumpkin Pie card stock carrot. The greens are made using a 2" x 4 1/4" piece of Wild Wasabi card stock folded in half and attached to the top of the carrot with adhesive and two bashful blue brads. Then I used scissors to fringe the grass for a more realistic look.
The chick and egg stamp is stamped in Basic Gray ink and colored in with So Saffron, Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie markers, then layered on a Wild Wasabi scallop that's attached to the box with dimensionals.

Purely Pomegranate is the ink and card stock, used along with More Mustard.
This card came together easily with Blue Bayou ink and card stock, as well as some designer paper from Porcelain Prints and Certainly Celery card stock. I added a photo corner and some hardware and that's it!
Add a strip of double-stitched Wild Wasabi and take a ticket corner punch to the two top layers and it's really a quick and easy card.
There are still 13 days left to get this set FREE with your $50 order.

This card also uses Whisper White, Real Red, Old Olive and Bashful Blue card stocks, along with some hodgepodge hardware and black gingham ribbon.
It feels like summer!
