omg! That first one with the rose, wowza my friend! Totally awesome! all of them are, but really love that one!

Allie Gower said...

So pretty! I'm getting so many ideas and thinking of all different colors to try from everyone's cards.

Melanie said...

Love the rose overlay! Black and white with a red rose get me every time! The reverse masked scene for the bird is just precious and I heart that peach and gray design!!

Theresa Momber said...

Karen, your cards are so beautiful! That rose card is over the top stunning. Love all your samples!

Pat Pritchard said...

Love the Birds and Blossoms set, can be used for almost any occasion.

El Ivens said...

Love all of your cards. I believe the first one is my favorite. Thanks for the inspiration.

Deb said...

BEAUTIFUL cards!! I really LOVE that sunflower one, but the others are lovely too!

Becky said...

Where do I start? The rose card is breathtakingly gorgeous. Then I got to the sunflower card and I loved it, too. Loved the softness of the "love you" card, and when I got to "wish big", I was totally in love. I love the way the bird and some of the tree go out of the frame and the soft colors. Just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

Lisa K said...

I could not select a favorite as they are all so pretty. I love the rose all by itself. Simply beautiful!

Verna Angerhofer said...

All are so gorgeous. My favorite is the last one though with the sponged on background with the cheery blossom branch.

Bonnie said...

The background on the first one is so unique and I just love it.

Dee said...

A gorgeous collection of cards! My favorite is the red rose on white. So stunning!

Cindy Roman-Daversa said...

That first card was WOWZA! But all of the cards...WOWZA! 😍

Judy I, St. Louis MO said...

Beautiful cards, but that first one with the rose is absolutely awesome. Love your coloring on the rose and the way you did the background.

Diana-Chuck Scott said...

Great cards, Karen. Love the first one with the rose and then those cherry blossoms - awesome. Can't wait for mine to arrive so I can "play". Thanks for sharing.

Irene S. said...

Karen I love all the cards, but most especially the ones where you used the deckle edge dies. You are so talented and really inspire me! TFS

Debbie Vasel said...

The card with the green embossed background is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!

Tami Priebe said...

As always your cards are amazing!! I am looking forward to getting to my scrap room and casing your cards each and every one of them :)

AnnieD said...

I love the peach Bellini card, with watermark cherry blossoms! Beautiful!

JR & DKR said...

I wish I could come up with such great ideas for the stamps I own. You always come up with such original ways to use them.

Denise Bryant said...

Macimbalo said...

Love your style Karen, all your cards are awesome!

Retta Lutte said...

All the cards are so pretty, but that sunflower one is to die for!!!!

Lizzie said...

I'm in love all over again Karen! You always have such stunning ideas and I haven't thought of using my deckle edge dies in a long time, what a marvelous job you did with them. It's very hard to make a decision
here but I'm going with the Rose card and the peach card as my favs, but actually they are all my favs! Thanks Karen for sharing

Sabrina said...

WOW!! So breathtakingly beautiful!!

Dee Earnshaw said...

OMG, these cards are so pretty. LOVE the first 'rose' card - it really leaps of the page. Thank you for inspiring me today:)

I love your work!

Nana Griffin said...

Oh, they are all just lovely.

Lagene said...

Great cards, I love this release!

Ladyj711 said...

Karen, I love your cards. OMG. That first one is breathtaking. It makes me want to stop in the middle of this comment ( w/ out even hitting post) and run and get some vellum out of my stash. There sometimes is something about one perfect rose... And this is it! If you didn't specify marker numbers etc. will you please do that? All of your colors and coloring is beautiful. I may have to try and imitate that first card when my order arrives.

Leuri Zibetti said...

Lovely cards, I've already ordered a Year of Flowers 3 and I have some of Theresa's other stamps.

Leuri Zibetti said...

I love the dry embossed background with flecks of gold!

Golda said...

Your rose card is amazing! Great work on all of them.

Sharon Fontenot said...

I like 100% of your cards - just sayin'.

Sue D said...

Gorgeous floral/bird cards.

Your card designs are very inspiring, I am anxious to try them out. Roses were my Mom's favorite, so I think that she would like the first card the most.

Helen F. said...

Oh my goodness, Karen. I thought your first card was my favorite, but then scrolled down to find all four are my faves :-) Beautiful work!
