Emboss Resist with Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet

I'm loving the new Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet Stamp Set.  I used it to create this fun card with the Emboss Resist Technique.  I wanted to keep it fairly simple and avoid die cutting as I've managed to break my wrist.  The splint is helping but when I made this card I hadn't figured out how to die cut!

Isn't this pretty in purple!  I'm excited that the Country Floral Lane Suite and the Country Bouquet Stamp Set are the featured products for the January Club.  Get more information on signing up below.
