Simple but elegant

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in layers and techniques that we forget the impact the tried and true techniques can have!  I always go back to Fifth Avenue Floral as a great go-to set for a basic card.  This is a great card that can be done in all sorts of colors!  I love the impact of the white embossing.  A very quick card to make!

and a bit of many of you may have heard or read, Stampin Up is renovating their colors starting with the July catalog!  Many colors are retiring, and there are new colors coming!  I have PDF's available on the right side of the blog if you want to see the changes!  While it may seem overwhelming at first, if you look at the new color collections, you will see that Stampin Up has really updated their collection!  Retiring colors will be available while supplies last through the month of June, so if you see a color going away that you just cannot live!! If you do not have a demo.....feel free to email me or shop on my stampin up site (link above).  Thanks!
