Crafter's Retreat #4

I have recently aquired the 5th Avenue Floral stamp Set (and yes if you are adding it up at home I have spent a bit lately...LOL!!) and I wanted to use it for my MIL's Mothers Day card. I took it one step further and did a half sheet wonder of sorts. The rose in this set co-ordinates with the embossing there are many possibilities there. I have been also trying to challenge myself and use colour combos that I would not usually try. In this instance it was Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and Kiwi a beautiful combo. Has never used NQN before...but it has quickly become a fave!!!

Here are the results, again a minor twist and the look changes!!

                                             The sentiment on this card was a little 'bare', so I grabbed the Baja flower fm the half seet wonder and stamped it over the sentiment...LOVE the way it worked out!!

And finally the one for my MIL for Mother's Day.....

The sentiment for this card was devised from the "Wonderful Favourites" set. I stamped "Mother" first then lined up the 'to my' over the top and then punched it out. You have to make do with what you have right???

Stuff used:
Card: (SU) Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White.
Ink: (SU) NQN, BB, KK
Punches: (SU) Large and Small Oval, Scallop Oval Punch.
Stamps: (SU) Fifth Avenue Floral, Wonderful Favourites, Best Yet and Amy R "Birthday Sentiments" set.
