French Foliage

Oh my, I am head over heels in love with a new stamp set.  I made this card last week for a resident:
This French Foliage stamp set has got to be one of the most versatile I've ever come across.  There is no limit to what you can do with it.
The base card is more mustard.
The next layer is very vanilla. I've stamped the script stamp in crumb cake on it, then the leaf in more mustard with early espresso rolled round the edges before stamping, which creates a fabulous effect. 
I've made the tag and stamped a small section of very vanilla cardstock again.

 I've used the little 'Paris' stamp on this piece and the ink blotch stamp in more mustard.  Every time I stamped something I gasped at how fab it was as it appeared on the paper.  I bet everyone who has this stamp set feels the same way about it.  It's by far the most 'artistic' set I've ever used.
The tag has a button and twine at the top and a little butterfly on the sentiment oval.  Love it.
Thanks for looking in today.  Let me know what you think. 
And just to let you know some exciting news.  I've been thinking about starting a craft group for the past month or so, trying to work out how I could do it in between my work shifts etc, but have finally taken the plunge and advertised in the village.  I've had a few phone calls from interested people, so my first group starts next Wednesday.  I'm having a session in the afternoon and a session in the evening.  I'll share what we make with you soon.
