Here's a card that is based on the one I showed yesterday only with a different color scheme and background. If you remember yesterday's card I used swirls for the background and this time I chose polka dots. For some reason, I am really enjoying using more gray colors. Isn't that "star" font just awesome! I love it!
Thanks for stopping by!

In the photo above you can see the layers a little more easily. I used a very thin pop dot to pop up the kraft label because the ribbon wouldn't allow it to lay completely flat. The large heart is also popped up on pop dots.
And, here is the inside:
I just kept this super simple inside. I really like the "Thank You" sentiment that is included with this set.

I was asked to design with 3 sets from The Angel Company's newest release "Serendipty Street". Many of my favorite samples weren't used in the publication, and I wanted to share a few with you now! So, here we go!

Loving this new (to me) PTI Blooming Button Bits set! I am also loving all these new colors I've been playing with lately! Here is today's card:
Above is a closeup of the card. You'll notice that I again stamped the background on the melon berry & aqua mist cardstock. I LOVE how it looks like I purchased it in the store!

It was quite a lot of fun to sift through my buttons looking for and matching just the right ones! Can't wait to do this with more color combinations!

Here's another simple card. I really like this color combo! Blue & green is always a good one, but this time I added a splash of red.

Isn't it pretty? I love using stamps to make my own background! This background is made with a stamp from PTI's "Turning a New Leaf" set and Belle Rose Palette ink on a soft pink Bazzill cardstock. I love the look it made!
Here's another view:
Isn't that ribbon soooo pretty!? I LOVE it!! I am going to have to go back to Hobby Lobby and buy it in some other colors too! But, since I use brown all the time, I figured that that was the color to start with!
Hope you enjoyed this card! Thanks for coming by! I'd love to hear what you think!

I am just loving this card...and these stamps! This card uses all Verve Stamps. Isn't the color combination pretty? I started with a piece of patterned paper that I've been hoarding because I love it so much. But, my friend Laurie made a card that ROCKS (LOL!! Sorry, Laurie that was for you!) using patterned paper and she inspired me to pull mine out and put it to good use! After I picked my patterned paper, I just played the matching game until I found a color combo that I loved. I think I scored!
The coral patterned paper is from October Afternoon's Cherry Hill collection. I stamped a background onto the blue paper. The sketch is from Page Maps. Isn't the ribbon pretty? It's from Really Reasonable Ribbon and they have LOTS of ribbon to choose from at very affordable prices!
Paper: October Afternoon Cherry Hill, TAC Brown & Ivory, PTI Aqua Mist & Berry Sorbet
Ink: Burnt Umber Palette, Champagne VersaMark
Other: Scalloped Border punch, ribbon, PTI Vintage Button, pop dots

This is a card I made for two challenges: a color combo challenge by Laurie and Heather's sketch challenge.
The color challenge was to use these colors on a card: Turquoise, Brown, Kraft & Ivory. This is one of my FAVORITE color combos (I'm sure you've probably noticed)! I'm not very happy with how the colors photographed (they aren't this harsh in real life and they really do all match).
Here is the sketch I was going off of:
Paper: TAC Ivory, DCWV Turquoise, TAC Brown, Amberly Grace
Accessories: Flower Punches, ribbon, button, tan scrapper's floss
