IC142 Beautiful Thing - Preview #4


Happy Saturday!!!

Even though I wanted to make more cards last night...I was not able to...as soon as I had finished my post yesterday - my phone has been ringing of the hook!!!

One of the calls was my long lost friend from Germany and we talked for ever...by the time we were done it was time to bring my little Monsters to bed - LOL!!!

Anyway - I had a fresh start today and I was able to make two cards - YEAAAHHH!!!

This card is for the IC142 - Marimekko Umbrellas. I have combined the IC with the beautiful *Color Challenge* from the OCC Girls - Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip.
These colors remind me of *Fall* and *Fall* reminds me of *Rain*.......
The layout is from Beate's WSC#54.
This is definitely a fully inspired card - LOL!!!

Today is the 4th day for *Little Paper Shop's* Sneak Peak Preview. I have used this beautiful *Flower* Set called *Beautiful Things*. Remember all Set's will be availibale on August, 26th!!!

Hope you like it????


This card was also inspired by the IC Umbrellas.

I have used the same Stamp Set as above and inked it with *Pretty in Pink*. As you can tell this *new* Set from *Little Paper Shop* is a 2-Step-Stampin' Set!!!

The sentiment was also inked in Pretty in Pink and layered onto same color CS - which was then raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

I have dressed the card up with some small Pearls, MS Butterflies and a Pink Ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will have a wonderful weekend!!!

Please swing by all the other talented ladies to see what they have created with this beautiful new Set...

Julia, Allison , Bonnie, Cindy, Chelsey, Elyssa,
Laura, Renee, Sarah, Dawn.
