Go with the flow Sunday

Today I chose one of the Stampin' Up! designer papers and decided to just make a few items using the same pattern. Plus a couple of dies and a heart embosslit.
I ended up with a card *might redo, a 4 tea-light box and a gift tag.
The paper I used is from the Tea For Two DSP, which is on the clearance rack, so if you like it, now is the time to buy before it's gone for good.
I also used natural ivory cardstock and crisp cantaloupe cardstock (from the in colour range)
