As I was blog hopping the other day, I came across some cards that were made with Basic Greys new paterned papers called Porcelain. I just knew from the name of the collection that I just had to have some. I rang up a store that I knew stocks the 6×6 Basic Grey pads – yes they have one left. Yippee!!! Just just love those 6×6 pads. While I was there I thought I’d also get some matching brads – gotta love them too.
This morning, instead of doing my house work, I cracked open my new goodies. So onto the card.
I used five different papers from the pad and a few brads. The rest of the card was made up with all Stampin’ Up products. The roses, from A rose is a Rose stamp set, were stamped with Pink Pirouette lightly sponged with Regal Rose. The leaves and vine swirl, from Baroque Motifs, are in Mellow Moss, which is a perfect matching green for this set of papers and brads. I then randomly ‘sprinkled’ some brads around the rose. After looking at it for a while I pulled the brads out and stamped a small flower, in So Saffron, over the holes and reinserted the brads. Lastly, the sentiment was stamped, punched and sponged.
I love the soft feminie look of this card. Hope you all have a happy day everyone.
