CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Fave Annual Set or Bundle

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is our favorite stamp set or bundle in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Well, my favorite set is Hand-Penned Petals, but I've used that one so much I thought I'd give a different set some love. There are so many lovely sets to work with! I decided to use Celebrate With Flowers, which is on page 62 of the catty. The first thing that jumped out at me when I saw it was the vertical Happy Birthday. I like using vertical sentiments, so I had to get it, but didn't pay much attention to the other stamps in that set until I had it in my hands.

Well, I absolutely love the possibilities with this stamp set! For today's card I went with a totally neutral color scheme and layout that can be used for any gender.

Gold looks fab with Basic Gray (see the Simply Elegant DSP to see what I mean!), so I used a strip of the gold metallic specialty paper and the adorable little bumblebees to lend an elegant look to the card. The scalloped border was made with a Penned Flowers die, so I did use something from that suite, anyway!

That's my share for today. Now click the Next button to jump over to Libby Fens at Libby Stamps, or the Back button to see what Mary Brown at Stamper Camper's Corner has made!
