Painted Petals FTL2 and PP235

Wanted to get some time in the craft room today so playing along with two challenges.   The Sketch is from Clean and Simple (FTL2-Take Two) and the Color Challenge is from The Paper Players (PP235).

You will see two different versions of the card below.  It is amazing how different a card can look by just changing up a few colors.    Let me know what your thougths are on the two versions!  :) 

The Painted Petals stamp set in the Occasionals catalog caught my eye right away.   I chose to purchase the set in Photopolymer (Item #137146 $23.95) but it is also available in Wood (Item#138819 $32.95) and Clear (Item#138822 $24.95).   I have found that any "Two-Step" stamps I can purchase in photopolymer the better.   It makes it super easy to line the stamps up, which is perfect and saves me a lot of cardstock!  You could always pull out the Stamp-a-ma-jig if you perfect your stamps in Wood or Clear.   

Hope you enjoy my project!
