I'm in LOVE....

...with these Basic Grey 6x6 papers! I got the Sugared and Eva ones from Stamper's Dream and I think that I may have to go back and get some more! They are so delicious it seems like a shame to cover them up with anything. In fact, I'm seriously thinking that a canvas collage of these papers would look totally awesome hanging over my desk!!

Anyway, I used one of the cute papers from the Sugared collection last night to make this really quick and simple card.
The base is Very Vanilla. I stamped the bird from 'Always' onto some Pretty in Pink CS in VersaMark and clear embossed it. I sponged the edges with some Pink ink and matted it onto Choc Chip. For the sentiment I punched out a scalloped circle of Pink and a 1 3/8" circle of Choc Chip. The sentiment is stamped onto the Choc CS in Memento Tuxedo Black. To finish it off I used the sample of gorgeous pink satin ribbon that Michelle from Stamper's Dream sent with my order (how sweet is that!), as it matched the Pretty in Pink perfectly.

As much as I was tempted to add other embellishments, I just wanted as much of this gorgeous paper to show as possible. Seriously, this card took about 20 mins to make all up. I love that! I also stuck the off cut piece of DP on the inside....I didn't want to waste a bit of it!!

There are so many gorgeous papers in these packs, I think you'll be seeing lots of them in the next little while!

OK, better go do some real work...LOL! Hope you all have a wonderful day,
