Sneak Peek #3: A New Hostess Set!

Good morning! Such a beautiful day here in Minnesota. I am so grateful for this nice weather!
Today I am sharing a card I made using a NEW Hostess set from the upcoming Stampin' UP! catalog called: Nuts About You.  I used the sketch at Sunday Stamps challenge blog as my card layout.  Here's the sketch:
And here's my card creation:
My actual design layout turned out a little different, but I will let them decide if my card qualifies for the sketch chllange or not. : )
There are so many cute little images in this set, I can't wait to play with all of them.  I studied this set for a long time before I actually bought it.  I wanted to make sure I could cut the leaves off of the tree as I prefer to use ink instead of markers.  And yes, indeed I could and did cut them apart! Yippee! 
Here I stamped the leaves repeatedly in Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Baked Brown Sugar to match the DSP: Fresh Prints.

And as you can see on the inside, I stamped one leaf image and made it into flowers in the grass. : )  So fun!
I wanted to make a birthday card for a friend, so I did use a different sentiment from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set.
