Can I say I just LOVE these new colors! I especially love Bleu Bayou, Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate. Last year I didn't really like SU's In Colors. I might have liked them more if I had bought them and had some time to play. I didn't start stamping until around November of last year and I didn't want to buy them just to have them retire in a few months. Last night when I was at M's I found this beautiful ribbon. I actually put it back because it didn't match SU's colors. Since most of my card stock is from SU I try not to waste money on embellishments that I won't use because they don't match. After I walked away from the ribbon bin I realized that the color actually matched Groovy Guava so I grabbed it up quick! Now that I've actually seen the two together and how much they really do match I think I'm going to have to get some more!
If you click on the picture you can see a blown up version of this with much more detail. I used my Linen stamp on the Soft Sky layer which you can't see here. For the top layer I stamped the Guava flowers first. I then use my linen stamp again, after stamping off most the ink a couple times I stamped it over the flowers. After the I stamped the large flower with Blue Bayou ink, again after stamping off most the ink.
The scallops were done with my slit punch, oh how I love that!! I used two different sized circle punches to cut out the Riveting image which I secured with pop dots after I tied a ribbon through it.
