If you remember the 70’s, you’re going to love this handmade card! It harkens back to a time of flower power and spur-of-the-moment road trips!

For this card, I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Driving By, which is only available until February 28, 2022. Better yet, it’s free with a $50 qualifying order!

To create that super easy-peasy background, I used a piece of the New Horizons Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up! I love this paper and you’re going to see tons of samples with it over the next couple fo months.

To finish off the “flower power” theme, I used some of the adorable Flower Flourishes Embellishments that up the cuteness factor on any card!
