This card is one of about 8, most done in this color combo, though I did a few and posted one done with bashful blue. It is very much my tribute to someone's work I saw on splitcoast but I did this a while ago and don't know who I cased it form. I'll keep better track moving forward. I actually messed this up as the technique of stamping on vellum with gold EP then coloring the back is what I was going for. Instead, I cleverly attached the vellum backwards and once those eyelets were set, it was a done deal. I also used Apricot Appeal to color the lily instead of the blush blossom, making it a more distinct. The peach is tamped with script and the green with the floral background stamp. I also stamped the peach frame and the actual stock with the words with the script. I ripped the peach. As always, the SU color combinations can't be beat - I love their paper.
This card is meant for a large SU 6 bar envelope. I work for a non-profit - we run a Hospitality House in our community for individuals and families who are ill, and also take in health students who are studying - medical students, etc. I make my cards and sell them at my office and donate all my proceeds to help pay the bills for the house. I always stamp my cards with an approved Angel Policy stamp, but also created a very small image on clear labels with a graphic of the house and a notation that the proceeds to towards helping with the house. It also states that I use Stampin Up products for the cards, so I feel doubly covered.

What a wonderful thing you are doing for your Hospitality House! I bet your cards sell out very fast. I have so much fun making cards that I will admitt they do tend to build up fast at times. I admire you.
