YIKES! I wanted to use this stamp set for bright Gerber Daisies. Definitely too bright. Oh well. I can't stand being stuck in a "color" just cause the stamp is a sunflower. I always love the bright flowers but maybe not for a card- I printed the definition of the gerber daisy in pink onto vellum.

The bright flowers are very nice. Maybe if you wanted to tone the card downn a little, use a neutral background like sahara sand or even a dark green like always artichoke. But I love them just the way they are.... They would brighten my day if I received a card in those colors. Great job! TFS!

I'm still debating about this set. At least you show it has other possibilities. Not too bright at all for me! Both are great layouts. I really like the idea of printing out the definition on vellum. TFS. Linda
