Five-Way Flower Notecards

I have been wanting to try the Five-Way Flower Stamp from Stampin' Up since I received it.  But the flower never really fit the card I was working on - and I have lots of other flower stamps.  LOL.  Today was the day.  I was very inspired by two challenges - again a sketch challenge a color challenge.  Here are the links:

Dynamic Duos Challenge #67 & Seize the Sketch #2

The cool thing about the Five Way Flower is that it coordinates with 5 of Stampin' Up's Scallop Circle punches.  For today's card, I only used 3 layers, 2 are punched and added to the card with dimensional adhesive.  I used the greetings from the Lacy and Lovely stamp set. 

Once I made the first one, I was hooked on the monochromatic look of the Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe.  Here are some other colors I tried.  I changed up the sentiment on the other colors. 

The colors are Island Indigo & Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush & Blushing Bride, and Elegant Eggplant & Wisteria Wonder.


What a fun group of cards to give to a friend.
