Hello, You!

Grrr! My internet and I have been fighting today, thus the delay in posting today's card...

This week's challenge at Pals Paper Arts is Dress for Success - basically a recipe card, using 1 DSP, 1 punch, and 1 sentiment. This was definitely a difficult challenge for me - you know me, I need an inspiration photo! But, I pulled this card together and it's starting to grow on me...

Here are the DEEtails:

I started with a Not Quite Navy card and layered on some striped Pool Party DSP - can you tell that I'm loving the Designer Series Paper Patterns In Colors?! :) Then I stamped the PTI Newsprint background stamp on some So Saffron cardstock and heat embossed it. I wrapped some Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon around the card and layered on a MS doily. I added my sentiment from SU!'s Hello, You stamped in Not Quite Navy on Pool Party and layered on more Not Quite Navy card stock to make it pop. Then I punched a Not Quite Navy butterfly layered with an image stamped from SU!'s Butterfly Prints and tucked in a leaf punched from the Bird punch and a flower embellishment from my stash.


  1. Love how the white sets off your design!

  2. Beautiful card Nina. I love the doily. Thank you for playing along with Pals Paper Arts this week.!
