Not only do I like the stamp set and paper, I also love the colors! I think we are all drawn to certain colors. For me these colors are some that fall into that category. I can say since becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator my choice of colors has broadened greatly.

I had a lot of fun with this card. I was very pleased with the end result too. I ended up using my watercolor crayons and blender pens for most of the flowers. The solid image flowers are stamped with classic ink. On the bashful blue flower I used a night of navy stampin' write marker to accent the petals. To be quite honest, I love this stamp set. It is very versatile. Many demonstrators are having a lot of fun using it. If you are interested in purchasing it the number is (123025 for wood) and (123027 for the clear mounted) set.
I wanted you to be able to see a close up of the flowers. I cut out everyone of the flowers by hand. It took some time to do, but it was not that long really. Like I said, I had a lot of fun with this card. Putting the pearls in the middle of the flowers added a lot too.
Embellishments: basic pearl jewels
I thank you for stopping by my blog. It would be nice if you would take the time to leave a comment. I understand if you don't. I don't always leave comments either when I visit other blogs.

I have attached a picture of the card I made for my daughter. This is her 2nd year of being a mom. I know she liked butterflies at one time. I am not sure if she still likes them as much as she used to, but I took a chance on it anyhow. This was the final result. I played with the butterflies for a while as to where I wanted them placed on the card. I even played with the bow on the ribbon as to where I wanted it placed at. That is the fun thing about cards. You never know what it will look like until it is finished.
Cardstock: blushing bride, pear pizzazz, peach parfait, in color designer series paper pack, and whisper white; Stamp set: retired well scripted; Stampin' write markers: pear pizzazz and blushing bride; Tools: big shot, perfect polka dots embossing folder, beautiful wings embosslits die, xl butterfly punch, 2"x 1 3/8" oval xl punch, and decorative label punch; Embellishments: circle rhinestone brad, basic pearls jewels, and 1/2" stitched poly-ribbon blushing bride.
