Pals Paper Arts Challenge

This weeks Challenge PPA83 at Pals Paper Arts :

What beautiful colours to play with this week. My card is:

I dont plan cards I usually start with a stamp set I want to use and go from there.  One of my favourites is the SaleABration Bliss set.
I embossed on cream with white embossing powder and then sponged crumb cake in the middle and baja breeze around the outside and then spritzed it with the spritzer and a crumb cake marker. This was matted on baja breeze and then onto some crumb DSP from the Neutrals Patterns Stack.  Beneath that I stamped the same stamp as the middle with baja breeze ink onto baja breeze card.  The next layer is from the DSP subtles Pattern Stack, and then some lovely lace to add a bow. This was then placed on a layer of Soft Suede and then baja breeze card again (phew how many layers is that).
The front is embellished with some flowers stamped in soft suede and cut out and the butterfly stamped twice in baja breeze and cut out.  The flowers have little pearls and the butterflies have some rhinestones.  So as usual lots and lots of layers


  1. L lovr how the colours co ordinate so well and I also like the way you use little embellishments to add interest. Again, another lovely card
