I love {💗💗💗} a stamp set that does most of the work for you. Floral Statements from Stampin' Up! is one of my new favourites. It seems like everyday I have a new favourite! The images are gorgeous and with a bit of colouring you are good to go.

I started out making this card with the sketch from Just Add Ink in mind .....
..... and got just a touch off track! My heart and circle elements are created by the embossing folder. (Too much of a stretch???)

I was also inspired by the challenge over at Global Design Project this week. I tried to capture the light, easy quality that Steffi has in her creations.

I love the bit of ruching I created with the Powder Pink ribbon. I like to add some tape to the card where I will be placing the ribbon and then add some to the back of the ribbon. Stong tape such as Tear & Tape works really well. Then I just unevenly gather (ruche) the ribbon, adhering down as I go.

Colouring the image is easy. Grab an aqua painter and pick up the ink from the lid of an ink pad and dab it on!

I have made some more cards using this set for an upcoming class and will post them later in the week for you to see.
