Hello Again & Fifth Avenue Card #1

Hi Stampers! I thought I would start off with a quick pic of myself & Ruby since you have not heard from me in three long months! There are many, many people I would like to thank for prayers, encouragement, cards & flowers; especially everyone at work, my stampin' friends, the Utah Divas, friends, family & neighbors. I do not have room here to post everyone's names, but please know you will be getting a card in the mail. I just started stamping this week. Did you know stamping is great physical therapy? ;-}

Enough about me. Let's get back to stamping. This is the first card in a set of three which I designed featuring Stampin' Up's! Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set which goes on sale for 20% off the catalog price now through April 30. Yes, Stampin' Up is sending us off into Spring with a sale on two-step stampin' sets. Today through April 30, you receive 20% off a selection of perfectly springy Two-Step Stampin' sets from our current catalog, including Fifth Avenue Floral, Greenhouse Garden, Flower Fancy, and Trendy Trees.

As I mentioned above, my card share today is Card #1 in a set of three cards I designed featuring the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper.
The card base is Kraft cardstock and the accent matting is Bravo Burgundy. The larger rose image is stamped in Sahara Sand Classic Ink for a subtle background effect. Since we don't have Kraft ink, Sahara Sand goes nicely with Kraft cardstock. The smaller flower image is stamped in Bravo Burgundy and serves as the focal image for this card. It is blinged up with an ivory half-pearl from the Pretties Kit. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (my current #1 must have set) and stamped in Bravo Burgundy. It is popped up with a Stampin' Dimensional to add texture and interest. Kraft Taffeta Ribbon finishes this card.
Stop by tomorrow for Card #2 in my Fifth Avenue Floral trio.
