Enjoy Today

Time for another Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge (#48)! I was very happy to see the colors she picked, because it meant I could use some of my favorite patterned papers. The card base is the sturdy, textured Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Kiwi Kiss dotted paper is from the Bella Rose DSP package.

The layout I used for this card is Jen del Muro’s Sketch for You to Try this week (4/4/09). I used the scallop square punch for the three small squares in the background, and mounted 1-1/8″ Whisper White squares on top. The flowers are from the Eastern Blooms set.

The sentiment from Hope Happens was stamped with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and clear embossed. I added a little dry-embossing with the Dots brass template and wrapped a piece of green satin ribbon around the Baja Breeze card stock before adding the brown scalloped borders.

Thanks for stopping by!
