Life is Beautiful

When I received the email from Penny Black about the new summer release......I caved.   I ordered on Tuesday (6/5) and received them yesterday (6/7)...talk about a happy mail day!
While my stamp room could use a little attention (ahem...putting things away) I just had to work in a little bit of creative time too.  New stamps deserve that don't you think :) 

This card features the new set Petal Party #30-113 as well as Puzzle Parts  #30-114 (both illustrated by my good friend Nina..LOVE her style!).  I stamped the flower using Memento Black Tuxedo and colored the flower in using Copics.  The side panel using Puzzle Parts was stamped with Memento Bahama Blue and layered onto a Turquoise Sea cardstock panel.  I have some other Penny Black stamps I am so looking forward to getting inky with over the weekend....so many stamps, so little time :)

 The colors for this card are inspired by the Play Date Cafe Challenge this week: 


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
