I couldn't resist playing along with some scraps I have leftover from a "secret" project (a new catalog swap- more on that to come!).
For my card, I used the new Topstitch paper pack and A Paisley stamp set (both available 1/1/10). (At left is a peek at the adorable A Paisley stamp set, which now sports the price of only $7.95!).
The colors of the Topstitch paper pack are Vineyard Berry, Baby Pink, Heavenly Blue, Chocolate, and Colonial White. I had fun "stitching" with my Vineyard Berry marker. I may have gone a little overboard, but it was fun to do. I embellished my card with a Baby Pink brad, Heavenly Blue designer ribbon, and a Heavenly Blue button. BTW, to get the Vineyard Berry flower in the middle of the Heavenly Blue large paisley, I just stamped the center of the paisley on scrap paper in Vineyard Berry, cut it out, and adhered it to the card front. Also, the colors match much better IRL!
If you haven't gotten your advance copy of the Spring 2010 Close To My Heart Idea Book, let me hook you up! You do NOT want to miss out. Each time I ask how can they get any better? But they do! Local gals, let's get together soon.
Finally, be sure to stop back by on January 1 for a rockin' New Year's blog hop featuring the Close To My Heart January stamp of the month, True Friends. (My creation uses the gorgeous new Veranda papers you can see on the cover of the new catalog. Hop on by!)
