I used all but the Poppy Parade.  I just couldn't get it to work for me.  I decided to use the old Retiform Technique.  I kinda like the way that it turned out. Here is my card and I will be sure to include the supplies below.

Quiet Medow Su1

and of course the simple stamping on the inside.

Quiet Medow SU 2

Make sure that you check out the  the YouTube video that I did live.  The measurements are very easy for this card, but here they are for easy reference.

Polished Pink: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored @ 4 1/4"

Merry Merlot: 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" , 4" x 5 1/4" for the die cuts

Basic White: 2 pieces @ 3 3/4" x 5 "

Blushing Bride: 1" x 3" for sentiment die, 2" x 4" for die cut

I think this video will show you an easy way to do the Retiform Technique.
