Fifth Ave Flowers

So I decided today to use my Fifth Ave Flowers Stamp Set. It is sad to say that I have only used it once and that was at Leonie's work shop. So I knew that I needed to get it out and put it to use. But of course some inspiration was needed. After looking at 30 pages of card's, I finally decide on a card to case. But as soon as I sit down I see the front page of the current catalogue and see that they have a great card that I can do. So this is the card I decided to case. I used riding hood red and choc chip. The only thing I changed is I used old olive instead of kiwi kiss. Also I added a second dimension to the big flower, which is hard to see in the photo. It was a very simple card but it has a lovely finish.

The second card was from SCS but due to the amount of card's I saw last night, I can't find it sorry. Black, baja breeze and white CS, ribbon and ink. I used the on your birthday set which I just got recently but am using all the time. Urban Garden D.S.P and finished off with a misc brad and a baja breeze flower. I know the flower cut off some of the sentiment, but I really wanted the flower in that corner. How funny is that. It just had to be. Lol
