Fifth Ave. Floral in shades of baja & crumb cake

Before I get to today's post I just wanted to share with you what's going on over on my facebook page. I'm having a drawing for a 6 pack of handmade cards. The only thing you have to do is "LIKE" my facebook page. Then if you post to your wall that you like my page and suggest it to your friends, you'll get entered a 2nd time into the drawing for the cards. If you get this blog post by email, just click over to my blog and on the right hand side you'll see a angelariddellstamps facebook page button. Click on that and it'll take you to my facebook page!

Also just wanted to let you know that there are only 3 spots left for the birthday card class, so if you want a sport register soon!



Good morning to you! Last night I had a workshop with some of my favorite people. Our hostess had requested some projects geared toward children events that incoorperated owls into the projects! I think I successfully met her needs. I'll share those ideas with you in the next few days!
Today I have a card for you that uses the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set. I haven't played with this set in a LONG time and I"m not sure why, because I had a blast and it's easy to get a nice looking card, quickly with this set!
I made several cards with this stamp set and color combination as well as the same pieces of cardstock. The only thing I changed up, was the way I used the embellishments on the cards. I"m only going to share one of the cards with you though, because I'll be using the other cards for stamp club (which starts in April, so let me know if you would like to join us).
I would say that this card has a  vintage look to it and it's hard to see in the photo, but it has tons of shimmer to it as well!

I used our pearls which I think every stamper should have a pack of these! It's a great way to add that extra touch to your card in such a simple way! I also used the seam binding in crumb cake from the spring occasions catalog and I have to tell you, when I purchased it I wasn't sure if I would like it, but this is another must have! and I would probably recommend this color first, because it goes with so many other colors!

That's it for today.
Have a great day and happy stampin!
Angela
