You Make the World a Better Place - Pal Paper Arts

Today's card uses one of the new stamp sets from the Occasions catalogue.  I've been dying to use it since it arrived a couple of days ago.  The sketch with Pal Paper Arts here provided me with the perfect opportunity.

PPA188-SketchThe base card is Melon Mambo layered with Whisper White and then Gingham Garden designer series paper.
I adhered a paper doilie to the bottom end to end some texture and interest, then I added a strip of Melon Mambo embossed with the scallop embossing folder.  A white taffeta ribbon coloured with an Elegant Eggplant marker was placed at the inner end of this strip of melon mambo.  I then added a ribbon coloured the same way.

The sentiment was stamped in Elegant Eggplant on Whisper White cardstock and die cut with the Starburst framelit, also from the Occasions catalogue.  It was adhered to the card using dimensionals.

Stamp: Starburst Sayings
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, elegant Eggplant marker
Papers: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Gingham Garden DSP
Accessories: Paper Doilie, 1/4" White taffeta ribbon, Starburst framelits, dimensionals

I really like this. I've found myself drawn to gingham lately and pairing it with a doily is just wonderful. And Melon and Eggplant! Who'd have thought but it really pops.
