I woke up this morning to 6 inches or more of snow… not a good morning! It was cloudy and miserable all day yesterday. They did say that we were going to get a lot of snow and they didn’t lie. I think I’m not going to even try to go to work, my little convertible is definitely not a fan of the snow. I’m sure that most of you are having a not so nice winter either. Hopefully it will be a quick winter!
On a fun happy note today marks the first day that you can order from the 2014 Occasions Catalog! I hope that all of my sneak peeks have inspired you and that you have all of your favorites on a list! 🙂
Today I have my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge and this week we have a very elegant color combo…
My card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. For the background I embossed a piece of Island Indigo with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed it with some Gold Foil Sheet. My flowers are from the Secret Garden Stamp Set and are heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, then cut out with the Secret Garden Framelits. The greeting is from the You’re Lovely Stamp Set** and is stamped in Island Indigo and cut out with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits that I also used to cut out some more Gold Foil Sheet. The butterflies are cut out with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit with yup, you guessed it, Golf Foil Sheet. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like the way the flowers match the ones on the greeting and it was nice to use the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, it was feeling neglected! Thanks for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I hope that you have a nice snow-free day! 🙂
