I really enjoyed playing with this stamp set and came up with a set of 3 cards that I am really loving.  I used a variety of mediums to create these 3 cards.  I ended up using La Vie En Rose, as I really liked this paper and the color pallet.

Here are close ups of each card.

Supplies used:

La Vie En Rose Paper, Black and White Daisy Cardstock
Journaling Pen
HollyHock, Black, and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
