Enjoying Calypso Coral

The other day my friend Val came over to look over the new catalogue with me.  We were flipping through the catalogue and we came across the Fifth Avenue Floral card on page 110 in the new Idea Book & Catalogue.  Val said I really like that card but wasn't sure how to get the same effect as the popped out flower.  My eyes twinkled and I said let's go downstairs and I will show you.  hehehe  After searching through my stamps we finally found a stamp set that we thought would work perfectly....Touch of Kindness.  Here is our version of the Fifth Avenue Floral card.  I am really happy with the way it turned out.  I had to put a little piece of Calypso Coral in the center of the flower in order for the Pearls to stick.  They didn't want to stick by themselves on the sponged ink in the center.  Stampin' Up!'s new in-colors are fun to work with.  I may need to make a bunch of these to have on hand as they are fairly quick to re-create and have my fav technique on it......embossing.  Thanks Val for stamping and having coffee with me the other day.  I miss those visits.
