Casing the catalogue - with Flower Shop bundle

I get so many ideas to try from our catalogues - colour combos, layouts, techniques & other tips. Today I'm sharing cards inspired by the layout of this sample on page 27 of our Annual Catalogue.
...and here's the first card I made, using the fab Flower Shop stamp & punch bundle. The colour combo is wisteria wonder, elegant eggplant with a touch of pink pirouette & strawberry slush.
For a little twist on the layout, I cut 2cm off the card front & added patterned paper  to the inside with another flower to carry the theme.
 I really liked how it turned out, so I made a second card using a new in-colour combo of pistachio pudding, coastal cabana & strawberry slush & another Flower Shop flower.
Hope you like what I did with the sketch. If you have any q's about the cards, just ask. Next time you need a little spark to get you started, flip through the catalogue & see what catches your eye to try. Thanks for visiting.
Until next time, inky wishes.
PS: The Flower Shop Bundle includes the Flower Shop stamp set & matching pansy punch. Even better, you'll save 15% on the separate price of each when you buy the bundle. Sweet!
