WSC40 - Calla Lily for Mom

Did you know Calla Lillies come in colors other than white? I wasn't sure before I colored this so I googled them and my inspiration for coloring them came from this photo. I used Summer Sun & Ruby Red.

The Calla Lily stamp is from my happy mail yesterday. I ordered some new stuff from Artful Inkables. Kristin Soboloski opened up her webstore just this week and is having a Grand Opening special:

Spend $30 and get 3 FREE stamps!
Spend $50 and get 5 FREE stamps!
Spend $65 and get 5 FREE stamps and FREE shipping!
Free stamps will be picked by us from our current stock and it will be a nice surprise what you get! Dont worry we won't put in anything lame or junky, only the good stuff! Size of stamps range from 1" all the way to 6 1/2". *

I couldn't resist her Darling Dragons or her Enchanted Fairies Check out Kristin's blog for some inspiration using her new stamps. I made 2 cute cards using both the sets I got last night but am having difficulty getting good pictures (inside is dark and outside there's a bit too much sunshine) so I will have to wait until this evening to post, plus my camera battery died so it's charging right now.

On my card, I used patterned paper and olive velvet ribbon both from my goodie package from Linsey. So pretty. The sketch is by Beate WSC40 (I missed the past 2 weeks *sad face*)
