Exclamation Carte Postale Question

I need SCS help! I am ordering Carte postale in my next order. Would you get Leaves a la Carte jumbo wheel or French Flair to accompany it? I cannot decide which would get more use.

I love French Flair! You can use it w/o CP also... the wheel is more limited in my opinion- but I don't use a lot of wheels...

I'm getting French Flair sometime soon and can't wait. The cards that use it (with CP or other sets) look so beautiful. I don't have a single wheel and really haven't regretted it.

I voted French Flair. I think it could be a card by itself. Have you looked in the gallery at both. That's what I do when I'm undecided. It gives me an idea of what can be done with the items I'm trying to decide between.

French Flair Background! As mentioned already, it is great as a card all by itself.

I need the choice "both"...I have both, and I love them to both complement the set! I have a couple of cards in my gallery that incorporate them both with Carte Postale!

Good luck!

I have both, but I use the BG stamp much more than the wheel.They are both good, it is just my preferance for the BG stamp I think.

I have both. The wheel is very versatile as a background especially if you are doing color on color. I say both.... just because you don't have to use them with carte postale.

Seriously. The background stamp. I have both, but the bckgrnd is da bomb! Drop dead gorgeous. You really can make a stunning card with JUST that stamp, lol. (Am I getting my preferences across, lol?)

I have both. I have never used the wheel! I need to get it out as I've seen so many lovely cards with it. I've only used the background stamp a couple of time. I like it though.

Carte Postale and the background stamp are the first two SU stamps I ever ordered. They are gorgeous and so is the LeJardin paper!!

I just ordered the French Flair background stamp and was thrilled to see it in the new catalog 'cause I didn't order it before and regretted it. It's a most unusual background stamp in that it's assymentric, so for me, the fact that it's different is one reason to own it.

And, what everyone else has said, it's just a beautiful stamp.

Just echoing what almost everyone else has said...

I have both, but I have not used the wheel at all. French Flair is so pretty, and I love how it can be used alone or with other sets. I have seen some absolutely stunning wedding cards made with it.

UM. I'll go in a different direction and say Le Jardin DP.

I don't think the wheel coordinates well and my hands are so small, it's difficult for me to use the background stamps.

The DP is my vote!

I don't have the wheel but I do have French Flair and like it very much. I've seen a cute christmas card from JeanneS that used French Flair to make it look like wind, very cute...

Having the whole set would be the real deal. This is a beautiful, timeless set that will always be liked and value.

I have the wheel and the background, now I need the set!
