Introducing... Summer Starfruit!!!

Back to life, back to reality... Meaning hubby is back to work! We had a fabulous weekend with loads of fun in the sun so today's gloomy weather is fine by me. Ethan and I have been crafting all morning and this is what we came up with!

The sketch comes from Retrosketches and the colour theme comes from The Play Date Cafe. This was a PERFECT time to break out some of my *NEW* items!!! I used my Betsy's Blossoms stamp set, my Patio Party dsp, my 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Whisper White ribbon and one of the 2012-2014 IN COLOURS - Summer Starfruit!

My Challenge(s):

My Cards:

This is the perfect opportunity to show you an example of the two styles of stamp pads in action!!! The basic black was the old style and the Summer Starfruit was the NEW style. Now granted I did have to do a little colouring touch up because this was my VERY FIRST time using the new style of pad but you can plainly see the quality of ink coverage from both pad types!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
