Love This Paper!

Reposted: This card and envie were published in the Nov. issue of Cards, pg. 116-117.

**Make sure that you check out my Come One, Come All! post for your chance to win some yummy Naptime Nuggets - one ONE day left!**

This card was made with paper designed by one of my favorite fabric designers! Amy Butler recently started designing scrapbook paper, as well, and I love it!

I was playing around with an upcoming watercolor tutorial (it looks to be one the clear favorites in the Naptime Nugget post, though I think I'm going to scrap it, and start over - pix didn't turn out great), and came up with this card. I LOVE this MFT stamp, and I think "the ladies" look great with this paper. I used my QuicKutz Revolution die for the scallop around the main image, and added some doodling. The ribbon is May Arts.

Hope you have a wonderful Monday, and remember, tomorrow is the end of this Naptime Nuggets contest. I've read every comment, and already have my next tutorial's pix taken, so stay tuned on Wednesday to check it out!

  2. You're coloring is awesome (again), but honestly, the one thing that ALWAYS amazes me about your work is how well you are able to combine patterns and color and embellishments. You have such an eye and a talent for making things work together beautifully... something I struggle with. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

    I love your colour and pattern coordination on this one and the way you accentuate the scallop edge!
