PPA 90

This evening I decided to try my hand at a Blog Challenge once again.  I found a sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts and decided to highlight the Botanical Gazette DSP.   Margaret Moody created the sketch:

And here is my submission: 

I absolutely adore the Botanical Gazette DSP - my photo doesn't do this piece justice.  It's a beautful shade of Old Olive with polkadots and butterflies.   The sentiment is stamped on a piece of the DSP came from the Oval All stamp set.  For some extra bling, I spritzed the card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and added some basic pearls.
Card Ingredients:

Stamp Set: Oval All
DSP:  Botanical Gazette
Card Stock:  Early Espresso, So Saffron
Ink: Early Espresso, So Saffron (ink pad and marker), Old Olive (marker)
Accessories:  Oval Scallop Punch, Wide Oval Punch, XL Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Basic Pearls, Coordinating Buttons, Vanilla Shimmer Smooth Spritz, Sponge, Mistletoe Ribbon(retired), Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Glue Dots

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!

Nature Walk Cards

I've been on hiatus for awhile - very busy at work and just having a hard time finding my mojo.  I received some new SU! items last week so I got busy this weekend putting together new stamps sets and set out to make a few cards.  I really love the stamp set, Nature Walk, and when paired with the DSP, Botanical Gazette, you can make some stunning projects!   Here are the three cards I created over the weekend:

(I saw this card on Carrie Gaskin's blog, Artistic Avenger, and just had to CASE it!)

I like card # 2 except for the ribbon...I may go back later this week & scrunch it! 

Thanks for stopping by this evening!
