In between running errands, and preparing for my class this weekend, I managed to fit in a bit of play time today.  I've made a card for this week's challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.

The starting point for challenge entries, is to use the following sketch, and incorporate Marina Mist (one of Stampin' Up!'s beautiful blues) in your project.

I have in my hot little hands some of the beautiful Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper that will be on sale from 1st September, when Stampin' Up!'s new catalogue goes live.  I was lucky to receive some as a gift a little while ago, but I've held off using it until now.  My card is rather simple and understated; I thought it'd be suitable for a sympathy card, or (as the sentiment says) just a "thinking of you" card.

Stamps: Trendy Trees
Card: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Whisper White
DSP: Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper (out 1st September!)
Ink: Early Espresso stampin' pad
Other: Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, sponge dauber, Marina Mist satin ribbon, Basic Pearls, Lace Border punch (available 1st September), mini glue dots


  1. This is just beautiful Christine, That paper is calling me!! Hanging for tomorrow to get an order in!

  2. How pretty Christine! I did not like that paper but the more I see it now, the more I am thinking it should be on my loooong wish list! Seems your lace border punch works beautifully too! Love the string of pearls on the ribbon!

  3. This is perfectly lovely and understated. I've just added more dsp to my ever growing list!


  4. Gorgeous, Christine. Love the simple elegance of this card and the doily border. The pearls are the perfect finishing touch.

  5. Ooh pretty! I love the row of little pearls on the ribbon :)

  6. Christiine, what a fabulous card. So sorry that you couldn't link it to our challenge. We had some issues with Mr. Linky last week. I do hope you play along again.

  7. Beautiful card Christine. My favourite - simple & understated! Sorry you missed the challenge, but as Kris stated we ironed out a couple of issues this past week with Mr Linky. We certainly hope you can play along in the future - would love to see more of your creations.
