I made this card for a friend whose birthday is in May. I used the SU! sets Fifth Avenue Floral and Noteworthy. Cardstock colors are Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Kraft and Regal Rose. Ink is Vintage Cream Hybrid Ink from Papertrey Ink. I love that ink! It is far superior to the SU! Very Vanilla craft ink by a mile! It stamps very evenly and dries faster. The ink pad itself stays nice and juicy. On the card I added some paper piercing and distressed the edges of the extra vanilla layer. This card was inspired by the flowering tree in my neighbor's yard. It is packed with yummy pink blossoms. I noticed the brown of the tree trunk, the green of the grass and the pink of the blossoms. I "muted" the color combo a bit by choosing Kraft instead of brown and Always Artichoke instead of a grassier green.
