The card for the post today was created to lift the spirits of a male friend who is struggling with some health issues.  This card needed to be fun, colorful and uplifting.

What do you think – does it fit the bill?  Seems like my new favorite designer paper pack is Parker's Patterns.  It is my go to paper for masculine cards.   But I surprised myself by using it on a sympathy card – yes, you read that right!  Check back tomorrow to see the card.

Once you  select your designer series paper (dsp), it is easy to coordinate cardstock.  Just find the dsp in the catalog.  Stampin' Up! makes it easy to coordinate because they list the colors that are in the dsp.  That is how I knew that Marina Mist, daffodil delight and Cherry Cobbler would work with my choice of dsp.

I appreciate your comments and, I do read each and every one of them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
