Flowers galore!

Hello!

I have some new flower stamps. I think I may never have enough flowers... LOL!  Today is the first day of a few days off work for me, and the sun is valiantly attempting to shine through the clouds, the temperature is very warm for mid-Winter, so I think it is a day for flowers!

My first card I made for Retro Sketches #70.
The stamps are PTI Ruby Rose. The background is stamped using Delicata Gold. The other inks are SU! Real Red, Old Olive, Early Espresso, and PTI Melon Berry. Card base is PTI Fine Linen and patterned paper is Fine Linen.
My second card I made just for fun, while I had the new stamps out, and I'm entering it into Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes. In the same order that Ruby Rose arrived, I received a mega-pack of Hibiscus Burst cardstock. I can see pink cards galore in my future! I love this colour. I'm lucky to have two girls who love pink, too!
Card base is PTI Hibiscus Burst. Ink is Memento Tuxedo Black. 

A very simple, but striking, card. I love the way the sentiments in this set are designed for a corner. And I love how the flowers, leaves and dots sprinkle so easily!

Thanks for visiting!

I love what you have done with Ruby Rose. That first card is my favorite. I love how you tucked the sentiment in the corner, and made such a pretty background.

Both cards are gorgeous! Beautiful stamping and colors on your first card! That second card is a lovely shade of pink and such an impact with the black!
