Blushing Whimsy

This is my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge (FS71).
As always, I'm trying to use the designer paper I have in stacks in my craft room! I really like the softness of this card. I haven't used my photo corner punch very much, but really like the look of them embossed.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Garden Whimsy, Small Script
Ink: Mellow Moss, Blush Blossom
Cardstock: Textured Ivory, Mellow Moss
Other Supplies: Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Punches, Non-SU DP, Ribbon, Dimensionals
