SSC#109: Garden in Bloom

Hello, and Happy Sunday! This week at Sunday Stamps! we have a color challenge for you to play along with.  Here's the sketch:

And here's what I made using the following Stampin' UP! colors: Crushed Curry, Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron.

I used the awesome stamp set called Garden in Bloom. You can find it on page 119 of the annual catalog.  I also used the Brick Wall 6 x6 embossing folder.  Such a fun folder! For this card I gently inked up one side of the folder with Crushed Curry ink and ran it thru my Big Shot. I then sponged a little bit on the edges of the "bricks" themselves.  A tone on tone effect looks perfect together. 

How about that cute bee?  Love it!  I also used another stamp set. Do you know what it is and where it is?  It's kind of a  trick question.  I used the Watercolor Wash background stamp set.  It works very well with the Garden In Bloom set because they both have the watercolor look. :)  I stamped it using So Saffron ink. It gives the main white panel a very soft, subtle look. Love it! 

Here's the supplies I used:
