lots of my favourites!

I was happy with these cards for this month's Stamp-a-Stack....probably because I just LOVE this stamp set, and everything made with it LOL
It's Fifth Avenue Floral, and it makes such simple but elegant cards. It's my favourite set at the moment.
I've also used 2 of my favourite new ribbons - Kiwi Kiss Satin and Riding Hood Red Taffeta. The satin ribbon is vanilla on the other side, and the taffeta has a pretty border on it.
And I've used my favourite Hostess set - Best Yet. Did you know that you don't have to have a party to earn the Hostess sets? Simply place an individual or group order for $300, and you can choose a Level 1 set and $30 in free merchandise!
And there's also my favourite punch at the moment - the Eyelet border. I seem to be using it on everything!
I like red and pink together, but it can be tricky finding the right shades of red and pink to combine, without clashing. Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red are perfect partners. I've also added Close to Cocoa and Kiwi Kiss for a bit of contrast.
