Today was a great day - my first order from the new catalog arrived! It even came a day earlier than I was expecting, so YAY! for UPS! I have a million things to do but I couldn't resist playing with some of my new stuff.
This week at Always Playing with Paper the challenge is a baby theme. Wouldn't you know, I had some new baby stuff in my box, so I was off and running. And can I just say how honored I was that they picked me as the headliner for my easel card in last week's challenge? Thanks so much, ladies!!
Now, for the background. First I cut a panel of new Melon Mambo designer paper . Below it I added a strip that I punched with the double scallop ribbon punch  - only half the punched piece is showing. Over that I added Blushing Bride ribbon . I am way impressed with this ribbon - it's great to work with, a really nice weight, and super cute! The Whisper White card base was covered with Blushing Bride designer paper . Finally I added a sentiment from the new hostess set Occasional Quotes , which I punched with the 1 3/4" circle and mounted on a 2 3/8" scallop circle punch . Now maybe I lost my mind at this point, but I decided to add the tiniest of the adhesive pearls on each scallop. I wouldn't do this for club or a swap or anything, but I do love how it looks.
Holy cow, ten new products on a single card. I think that's a record for me! This was a really fun card to make. I have a long to-do list for the rest of the week so you probably won't see me again until the OCC post on Saturday. Hope everyone is having a great week and staying cool!
