Playing with Decorative Paper

A couple of weeks ago I had a wonderful surprise in the mail.  My friend Doris sent me a package of stamping goodies.  Thank you, Doris!

This beautiful paper was in it and it immediately won my heart.  All I had to do was trim it off a little and it was a perfect fit!


I missed two challenges with this card but I wanted to share it with you anyway.  

But wait...

At Addicted to Stamps the challenge is 

ANYTHING GOES!!


At SCS the Ways to Use It challenge is Garden Theme but with no flowers.  Well there is a flower but mainly it's a dragonfly.

The sentiment is a sneak peek of a Hostess Set in the upcoming catalog.  You can begin ordering from that catalog on May 31st.  This set is going to be a keeper!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps: Express Yourself
Ink:  Soft Suede
Paper:  Soft Suede, DSP (Unknown)
Other:  Adorning Accents Edgelit, Adorning Accents EF,  Rose Red Seam Binding

I'm glad you could stop by.

Enjoy!

Beautiful design, I love the peach & brown together. I'm trying to figure out if you stamped the dragonfly or it's part of the pretty Designer Paper. Shirleyx
