color and pattern perfection!

So last week, I won this FABULOUS new stamp set from Paper Smooches, called Potporri.
It is a BLAST to play with!!!!! Here are two cards that I made, featuring fun backgrounds that I created with the Potporri stamps.  I paired them with some sentiments also by Kim Hughes, from some old Cornish Heritage Farms sets.

I LOVE the way the big flowers turned out, and the blingy centers (buttons from Close To My Heart) were the perfect finishing touch.

I found this color scheme in the latest Better Homes and Gardens magazine.  It was an article about paint colors - but I said "ACK! I must make a card with these!" ( I really did say it!!!!) And so. . .
I did!!! And I liked it so much, I made TWO! 

Thanks BUNCHES to Kim Hughes and Paper Smooches Stamps!!! Winning fabulous stuff is SO MUCH  FUN!
