Fabulous Florets

I've been working on some new cards for my display boards and my card buffet. One of the sets I just love is called Fabulous Florets. It's found in the summer mini as well as the new Idea Book & Catalog. I've been seeing a bunch of cards made with this set, but most of them are in the bright and neon kind of colors. I wanted to try something a bit different and so I used some of the new In Colors to deck these cards out.
I used Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla card stock for this card. The ink I used was the retired Groovy Guava and Wild Wasabi. A small piece of Victorian Ribbon is ran through the center of the card. I was going to use my shimmer paint to add a touch of sparkle but I seem to have misplaced the bottle. For now, it's done.

I just love the Wisteria Wonder color in this year's In Colors. I don't have the matching ink pads yet, so I chose Pale Plum and Wild Wasabi for this card. I used a piece of the Lucky Limeade for the saying at the bottom just to add another punch of color. I sponged the edges just a bit too. Topped it off with a pearl in the center of the flower. 

This card is very similar to the previous one just set on it's side. I used the same colors here and added a couple more flowers in the center along with the pearls. 

I cased this one off of Stampin'Connection. I used a couple of different stamps but the same idea as the original with the DSP. I layered with the In Color Concord Crush. I'm thinking I need to add some glitter or something to make is sparkle. (I love sparkle!) 
Well, that's just a start and a few of the cards I made yesterday. I have some more to share with you from some of the other sets in the new catalog or summer mini. Stop by again tomorrow and see what I have for you. As always, leave a comment and let me know what you think. I love to read your comments and appreciate you taking the time to stop by my site. Hope you are having a great weekend! Happy 4th of July!
