Launch Recap Part 2 - Bec's cards

 One of the nicest things about being a Stampin' up! Demonstrator is the friendships I've made through stamping, with customers, downlines, uplines and sidelines.  Rebecca O'Gorman and I both have the same upline, so we call each other Stampin' Sistas.  She and Stephanie Pike (our upline's upline) have become such good friends to me that it is difficult to imagine not knowing them.  I love doing these events with these girls, they are so talented, hardworking and positive.  

Enough with the love fest!  Let's get back to the cards!

Here are the three cards Bec O'Gorman designed:

Card 1

This card truly looks much better in real life - the combination of Smoky Slate and Strawberry Slush is so pretty, and the Dazzling Diamonds glitter in the centre of the flowers in gorgeous and glittery.  Plus what's not to love with a flower stamp set and matching punch?  It features products from the main catalogue, including Flower Shop, and Bring on the Cake.
