Pretty Colours

I really love this colour combo, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight. I also really love the stamp set I've used on this card. It's called Fast & Fabulous which is hostess set but it really is lovely and I'm coming to the conclusion that these stamps look good in any colour!

I followed this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday and I'm also going to enter this card in the Allsorts challenge which is Inspired by Nature, and Our Creative Corner challenge which is Getting Wordy!

Stamps: Fast & Fabulous, So Happy for You, Cheer & Wishes
Card: Whisper White, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Pear Pizzazz Patterns
Ink: Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight
Punches: Boho Blossoms, Eyelet Border
