TE Sneak Peeks: Friendship Blooms

Hi Crafty Peeps!

Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions. Today we are sharing samples made with the new Friendship Blooms stamp set illustrated by Nancy and the coordinating dies: Leafy Branch and Friendship Blooms. There is also a new impression plate called Scallops and Circles that I used on my card. :)

I used the impression plate on the background panel of pink (me likey!). I stamped the leaf image from the stamp set in Pastel Olive on Kraft cardstock and cut out with the matching die. I accented the card with a bit of pretty ribbon and a crocheted flower.
