I'd recommend the stamp set Fifth Avenue Floral for any beginner. These flowers look great stamped in so many color combinations. Here, I used Night of Navy, Barely Banana and Real Red.
This is a Whisper White card with a torn strip of Jackpot designer series paper. A length of 1/4" Real Red grosgrain is knotted in front.
The sentiment is from the Great Friend stamp set in the Occasions Mini.
