The Stamp Review Crew: Petite Petals Edition

Welcome to another edition of The Stamp Review Crew!  This time we are all sharing projects made with the cute little flower set Petite Petals. It has a coordinating punch that makes it really easy to use.  I chose this beautiful color combination from colourQ to use on my cards.  
I thought these were pretty unique colors to use on a flower card. Not your typical pinks and purples, that's for sure!  Here are the cards that I came up with.  My backgrounds are made by putting So Saffron and Hello Honey ink directly onto a clear block, spritzing it with water and then stamping it onto my cardstock. I finished off the background on this first card by stamping some So Saffron flowers onto it.  I had lots of fun punching out the little flowers for my accents! 
 I really liked the way this next background turned out, but it was crooked on my cardstock, so I ended up cutting it out for something different and matting it with a distressed/embossed piece of Soft Suede cardstock. That's the new bokeh embossing folder if you didn't recognize it!
