Petal Passion Designer Paper

Sometimes, I make a card that I just really like!  So, I copy myself! :-)  I made this card for a sketch challenge a while back:

Fabfri133

I loved the simple layout, and the way it really highlighted the designer paper!  So, I made another, but using the Petal Passion Designer Paper this time:

Petpalette

The black and white background really makes the glimmer paper "pop"!  The sentiment is a thinlit from this year's Sale-a-bration, but don't worry -- it will be back in June with the new catalog!!

Also, the Myths & Magic 6x6 Glimmer Paper is half price right now!!!  GREAT deal!

Blending Old and New!

Today's card is a nice mixture of "old" and "new"!  I used the Statement of the Heart from the Share What You Love Gotta Have it All Bundle, and paired it with one of my favorite designer papers from the current catalog, Delightful Daisy!  I especially love this particular pattern -- the blue and yellow is so bright and cheerful!
