A Pursonal Card




Using the colors from Stacey's Curtain Call Challenge (Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz, White) and Lea Lawson's layout from Skipping Stones Design, I came up with this fun card. I paper pieced the purse, die cut the doily lace border and added an embroidered floral trim (by Wright's). This retired DP had all the colors I needed with the green being a little brighter than Pear Pizzazz but close enough IMO. Hope you're having a wonderful day...wherever you are!

STAMPS: Skipping Stones Design (purse & sentiment), Express Yourself by Verve (flourish)
PAPER: Rainbow Sherbet (SU), Tangerine Tango, Neenah Solar White
INK: Tangerine Tango, Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Scalloped oval Nestie, CB, Trim, Sheer ribbon, Doily lace die (MFT), Brads
