Use that Pattern Paper and Winner Announcement

Hello friends!
 I am back to share my 2nd card with Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit  (too bad that it is sold out now).

thank you-001

Delicious colors, right?
Well, I have nothing to do with the color choice...except I added one color--Mint Candy!
I adore that Spiral Flower Die.

Thanks to the card kit, color combo is very manageable!
 I think this stamp set is every stamper's arsenal
It makes a great background and it really add colors to any design that you might have in mind.

I really like this stamp set "Brush Stroke Messages"

thank you

I could have embossed the sentiment with Steel Navy Embossing Powder (included in the kit).
This time, I took a short cut and stamped it in Navy Blue ink.
The hearts were stamped with Rose Apple with Generational Stamping technique.

thank you (2)
