Sunday afternoon stamping

I did a little stamping today, before I forced myself into some spring cleaning! The first card is for Jen Del Muro's challenge found here. The challenge was to follow her sketch as well as use pink, coral and celery. The coral was the hardest part, but finding the prima in my stash helped pull the card together. The stamp is from Happy Harmony; the image is stamped in pink and celery, with the edges of the flowers rolled in coral. The blossoms are all covered in diamond Stickles. The patterned paper is from SU's palette of prints.
This was a card that I had partially stamped earlier and found again as I was cleaning up scraps today. So I decided I ought to finish it. The iris is from Penny Black - I love irises and I LOVE this stamp. I inked it in amethyst and artichoke, then spritzed it with water and stamped it three times, each one getting lighter. The sentiment is from Small Sayings. I used the ticket corner punch, organdy ribbon and amethyst brads from Making Memories to finish off the card.
