Too Kind Thoughts, CCMC260, SFF070513

Hello, all! I must admit that this morning I'm feeling a little jealous. Most of my fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrators are heading off to Utah for the annual SU convention, and I won't be joining them. I'd already decided earlier in the year that I wouldn't be able to go because of all the unexpected travel I'd had. Now I know it truly wasn't meant to be because of Hubby's bypass surgery last week. Still, I wish I was there. I hope all my bloggy friends will keep me company this week and leave a comment!

Featured today is a clean and simple card using the Too Kind Stamp Set. I think this is one of the best two-step sets SU has come up with in a while. The simple images are so easy to layer, and are so pretty. This card was inspired by one made by my fellow Demonstrator, Connie, as well as two challenges.

The colors are from the Create with Connie and Mary challenge. Love them! This year's new In Colors are the best ever! 

The great simple layout is from Sketch Frenzy Friday. What a perfect pair! 

Step one of the two step blossom was stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe. Step two was stamped in Calypso Coral using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for perfect placement. The Stems and accessories are Pistachio Pudding, yum! Life with coordinating accessories is so easy!

Card Stock: Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe
Ink Pads: Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Pistachio Pudding
