I finally got to play with my new toys! I've had them for almost a week, but this is the first time I could actually make something with them. It's been driving me crazy! lol I did use a sketch challenge on this card. It's a new one I haven't done before at the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. It's FTL144, and you can find it HERE.
This set is called Delicate Doilies. The images in this set are so dainty and pretty. I really like it. I can't wait to use the set on a scrapbook page! The other stamp set, Swirls & Curls Verses, is the level one hostess set in the current Summer Mini. The other new item I used is the border on the right side of the card. It's a punch called Lace Ribbon Border Punch. It actually punches out a beautiful lacy wide strip. I've only got about a third of it showing.
How do you like the colors? Aren't they gorgeous?! The colors are three of the five new 2011-2013 In Colors. I'm in LOVE! The purple color is Wisteria Wonder, coral color is Calypso Coral, and green color is Lucky Limeade. I'll be using this color combo a lot!
