Playing with New Stamps!

I've been playing with a new SU! stamp set called Field Flowers for a little while now, and today I used the SC345 sketch challenge to make another card with them. I stamped the image with Memento dandelion and tangelo inks and the stalk was done with always artichoke. The sentiment is from Sweet'nSassy's Your Friendship stamp set and all the card stock and dp is from PTI's summer sunrise and ripe avocado.
Here's one I made and mailed to a sweet friend last week, and this one is done with Plum Pudding and Old Olive colors. The sentiment is from SU's Whimsical words. The flowers were done with SU! pale plum and perfect plum inks.
I hope you're having a great day doing something you enjoy!

They are both beautiful, Carol. I especially love the second one because purple is my favorite color - but also because however you've managed to get that bow on there - it looks fabulous!

Carol I love both of these cards. I was not excited about that stamp set until now and I've seen how your cards turned out. Now you are going to start costing me money LOL. Seriously these two cards are beautiful.
