I wasn't sure of Carmela's favourite colours so I used the challenge at Sunday Stamps, which is way outside my comfort zone, but it does you good from time to time, to shake things up a bit. The vase of flowers from Pictogram Punches is a good way to introduce a bit of colour, and I love punching them out with the cute little punch. When the vase needed 'grounding' I pulled a striped banner from Perfect Pennants.
I was lucky enough to get a great stamp set, Workshop Words Too, by attending Convention a couple of years ago and it has the "Welcome to our Stampin' Up!® family" sentiment, which is a perfect fit for a new recruit. I'm not sure if this stamp set was ever available to order, it is aimed at demonstrators.
Thanks for looking,
