A Ripe Raspberry flamingo amidst Fuse Green foliage paired with bold swoops from the brand new Blueprints 25 make for an absolutely marvelous greeting to send to a friend. Erin Lee did a superb job making a cohesive focal point that absolutely shines!

Miriam featured a lovely flower using the Wildflowers stencil set amid the four colors. What brings an extra shot of sophistication is her addition of the Black Licorice as a neutral some subtle, yet glamorous sparkle.

Sometimes a sentiment can be the driving force of a design! Here, Veronica framed this scripty greeting from the True Friends stamp set with the colors for Challenge 21. The addition of the lovely flowers from the Modern Blooms stamp set and Die-namics give this card a decidedly feminine touch.
