Here's todays card...

Stylish sketches - berriesand a bit closer look

Stylish sketches - berries cuThe background designer paper is really one of the most gorgeous sets of papers we have right now--it the Splendid Day Designer Series Paper--the foils and the delicate coloring are almost enough to focus on without any additional images. But then when we add this beautiful sketched image we have a match made in heaven.

The stamp set doesn't include any greetings so I went back to our staple Go To Greetings and found the little "hello" that fits perfectly in that space.

By adding that silver cord bow that coordinates very well with the foil designer paper we have tied the focal point with the background quite well.

Then the embellishments are just perfection--they are the new Adhesive Backed Sequins & Gems in the holiday (July - December) mini. The sequins are super reflective and the ones we used for the card match the Fresh Freesia color in the focal image.  The self adhesive part makes then a "Must have" in our embellishment arsenal.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Stop back by Thursday and see another card using this superb set.
