Friday Flashback: Flower Fancy

Happy Friday and welcome to this week's Friday Flashback!  I randomly picked a fun springy stamp set today, Flower Fancy.  Let's visit the archives, shall we?


I remember thinking this color combo was never going to work (it was an SCS color challenge) and then being pleasantly surprised with it when I actually got my card made.  I also used the still-current Four Frames and Pursuit of Happiness.


 I like the flowers on this name frame, but I'm less sure of how much I like the cut-out Broadsheet Alphabet letters.  But I like the bright colors!  You know me, I love-a de bright colahs!


Here's one using my favorite Baja Breeze *sniffle*!  Fear not, I have quite the stash of both 8.5x11 and 12x12 cardstock to keep me company.  I was surprised how well it went with Island Indigo and Rich Razzleberry, this is one of my favorite cards!

And here's today's creation:


I went with some springy colors for today, and I picked out the two stamps I hadn't used yet in this set.  There's no sentiment on it so it can be for Mother's Day or a new baby (I always thought this color combo would be cute for baby girl cards) or just hey friend, I'm thinking of you.  I was inspired (or should I say INKspired?) by the latest challenge at Inkspirational:


Obviously I just went with the sketch and chose my own colors :)  And I moved the bow to the bottom of my image because it just didn't work on the top like in the inspiration pic.

That's it for me this week, y'all have a great weekend!  We leave early tomorrow morning to spend a couple days in Amsterdam.  I know, tough life right?!  Happy stampin'!
