Garden in Bloom in Sweet SugarPlum

I separated out my current stamp sets from those retiring and my stamp shelf definitely looks a little bare.  One positive is I am now very aware of sets that did not get enough use and can remedy that situation while I wait to order some new sets.  Garden in Bloom is one such set.    This is such a lovely set with great images and sentiments which is why I ordered it so why haven't I used it?

I also decided to play  with the new In Colors.  Today I am playing with Sweet SugarPlum. Whenever  I start playing with the new In Colors, I feel like I am on an awkward first date.  Just not sure about the whole thing.  I used So Saffron and Mint Macaron along with the Sweet SugarPlum.   I think it works but like a first date, time will tell it it is a keeper combo or not.

I added a layer of vellum over the stamped image to tone it down a bit and don't you love that soft slightly out of focus look?    I also stamped some little bees and embossed them with white embossing powder with a little Dazzling Diamonds mixed in.  The bees add just a little sparkle to the card.  

Have a great Memorial Day weekend and I hope you get some time to inky!!
