I made these cards as an ensemble. I used one of my go to layouts on these. Very simple. The designer paper is the Afternoon Tea paper. This paper is no longer available. I chose my colors from the dp. The flowers in the full sized cards are in soft sky with a wild wasabi stem. We don't have markers in the In Colors so I brushed my blender pen on my ink pad and then colored the stem with it. It worked out great. I used the Heartfelt Greetings stamp set. This is an oldie but a goodie. It has seen some recent use. I think it goes well with this patterned paper.
For the 3 x 3 cards I used the same Afternoon Tea paper but the stamp set is embrace life. The flower in front has tiny beads glued to the middle of the flower.
We have had another beautiful week of weather this week. For the 4th of July we have ordered up a beautiful 80 degree day! We are going to go bbqing at a friend's house and then on to catch some fireworks at one of the local displays. We have so many to choose from in this area. To all of my US readers, I hope you have a wonderful 4th!
