My friend & fellow Pal Nicole Watt designed a fun challenge for us this week.

And here is the sketch from Nicole. 


A new Paper Pack named Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Paper creates some visual interest.  Although I have used 2 different patterns of dsp, they actually complement one another.  This paper is bright & bold!  I calmed it down by using Night of Navy Mats on the dsp pieces.

Some faux stitching with a Night of Navy Stampin' Write Marker helps to draw the eye out & accents the 5" x 5" Crumb Cake Card Base. The sentiment from Layering Love is stamped with Night of Navy Ink on a piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock that is cut out with an Oval Framelit.

Pearls add a nice accent to the side of the oval sentiment.  And, you can spot 1 solitary Pearl at the bottom of the sentiment. In order to draw out the Mint Macaron Color,  I created an envelope from Mint Macaron Envelope Paper with the Envelope Punch Board.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Please consider joining us at the PPA this week.
