Flower Fancy Thinking Of You Card

Flower Fancy is an SU! two-step stamping set which I discovered on eBay.  I thought it was a retired set but I found out it's still current in the USA.  I love two-step stamp sets and this one is more contemporary than the other two-step floral sets I have and I decided it would be a good choice to add to my stash.    I LOVE this set - I'm so glad I got it!

Michelle from the Card Grotto lost her grandad recently and I wanted to send her a card.  I kept things fairly simple with a one layer card which measures just a tad under 5" square.  I stamped the outlines with Early Espresso ink and the solid flowers with stamped off Rich Razzleberry with Marina Mist centres.  The solid leaves were stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  After stamping the sentiment I rounded two corners, added some gems and the Rich Razzleberry taffeta ribbon to finish the card front.

Then I stamped the envelope and the inside of the card with the flower stem image from the set.
