2020-2021 Annual Catalog Swap

There is a local group of demonstrators that I am friends with and they are having a swap using items from the new catalog.  I made a couple samples with the set I chose, (Celebrating Sunflowers) but I am not sure which one I want to use:

DH likes the middle one, but I am still on the fence!  The card base on all three is Night of Navy as is the larger label and the sunflower cut out.  The dsp used is from the Flowers for Every Season designer series paper pack.  The larger label was cut out from the Tasteful Labels dies and the white sentiment piece was created using the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.  The sentiment is from Ornate Thanks and was stamped with Night of Navy ink.  The embossed piece is the new in color Misty Moonlight and it was embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.  I added a white mat after making the top one and I do like it better.  I punched out a 3/4" circle from a scrap piece of silver glimmer paper.  I added rhinestones to the sentiment and now I just have to decide if this is the card I want to use and if so, which one!  This is a fun stamp and die combination with lots of potential so I might just keep experimenting!  Cards are not due until the end of June.  I have to make 20 or so and so the supply of dsp is also important.  I have more coming in my first order since the catalog went live and I hope it gets here soon!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are all staying healthy and safe!
