Sweet Postage

I wanted to use my new Postage Stamp Punch and the coordinating stamp set Pretty Postage and came up with this card.  One punch led to another as I layered the postage image.  I think the Petal Card Double Punch made a nice layer, too.  When deciding what to use on the background of the Naturals White card I thought of one of my favorites, the grass image from Inspired by Nature.  I also used my bone folder to distress the strip of Crumb Cake cardstock and the Lucky Limeade petal punch piece.

Cardstock:  Naturals White, Lucky Limeade, Concord Crush, Crumb Cake

That grass stamp is the perfect touch, and anything with Naturals White and Crumb Cake is automatically going to catch my eye :)

Love the colors you chose. I never would have thought of using them together! The grass in the background is a great touch, too.

I like how you combine sets as you need to to make the cards coordinate so well. Great colors and great card!
