5 Stamps Challenge and Sweet Color Comb

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Today's 365 Cards challenge, #237 Friday Five, is to use exactly five stamps on your card. Mine is obviously modeled after the sample card there, but I just couldn't resist!

My color palette is totally stolen from Stacy Julian's I Love Color post today, Sweet. I used (from left to right on her palette) Blush, Pansy Purple, Orange, and Hollyhock.



My second card uses the same circle stamps and color palette, but I added the Treasure Life sentiment and dotted curvy line from my Angel Whispers stamp set.
All materials from Close To My Heart:
Both cards:
Blush, Pansy Purple, Orange, and Hollyhock inks
White Daisy, Pansy Purple, and Hollyhock card stock
Adorable, Connections, and It's a Party! stamp sets
Card #1 also uses:
Be True stamp set
Blush ricrac
Hollyhock button
(I used my circle punch to cut out the Pansy Purple card stock circle, stamped the cross medallion image on it, and then pop dotted it onto the card.)
Card #2 also uses:
White Daisy grosgrain ribbon
Angel Whispers stamp set
(I stamped the backside of the Blush medallion image in second generation Pansy Purple to get the circle behind the cross medallion image.)

Both cards are great! But I especially love the simplicity of the first one. And the color combo is very unusual - I really like it!
