Weekend Stamping - Retirement Cards

So here is my second retirement card after my BFF critqued it, reminding me that the colors  should be in 3's.  I added the butterfly in Berry Sorbet to go with the frame and flower and added some background stamping in Aqua Mist.  I knew it needed something else and she told me....Hee Hee

So, a friend from work asked me if I would make her two retirement cards and of course the answer was yes.  As you see there are 3 of the first card, because when I took the picture, the rosie posie sort of blended in with the rest of the card, so I thought I would try it with different colors, the lighter pink and then a yellow.    I am not sure I want to add a third color, but I do kind of like it.  I used Hibiscus Burst and Hawaiian Shores for the colors. You can help me by giving your opinion which you like best.
Then the second card is made with the Pretty Peonies set, using Aqua Mist and Berry Sorbet.  Not sure if it needs a little something else but not sure what.  What do you think?


  1. I would agree that the first one blends in too much...and although I like the yellow one, I think the lighter pink is really prettier.

  2. Yes, that is much better!! Good job salvaging the card! Sorry to be so honest (*wink) don't ask if you don't want to know!!

  3. So beautiful! I agree with you on the first one too, but that second card is so perfect! Love everything about it, that white over the top is just fabulous. Your final card is so classy and elegant, I don't think it needs anything else, but that is just my opinion.


Thanks for stopping by. Your comments really make my day.
