The cards below were made using the Petal Pizzaz stamp set I have kept the layout very simple & with clean lines. I loved using Riding Hood Red with the Whisper White & the flowers finished off with a white pearl from the Pretties kit, the second card I have added So Safron for a little warmth & finished with a little Bling Brad also from the Pretties kit
