Newest Papertrey color

Papertrey released two colors in October, Ocean Tides and Ripe Avocado. They were very regal sitting nect to each other in the box. Of course, that could have also been the effect of 10 rolls of matching ribbon spilling out of the box, too! The Avocado is deeper than SU's Old Olive, but along the same color 'line', I'd say. In the photo above, I placed a spool of Aqua Mist twill under the Ocean Tides twill, I hope you can see the color difference. I'll try and work with the RA today. Actually, I tried last night, but got too tired- the first thing I thought of was Anna Griffin, and pulled out papers and tried to make something work... well, I'm sure you know the story- you just end up looking at stuff as your head sinks into your chest. So! I'll try again today!
The snowflake card uses both Snowfall and Snowfall Additions, and the sentiment is from Believe. The Ocean Tides card is stamped with Ocean Tides ink, and many of the snowflakes have glitter glue or a glitter pen on them. The center medallion is from the 2008 Tag Set, stamped on white with Ocean Tides ink, punched out with the Blue Marvy scallop punch, and Dazzling Diamonds around the edges. Ribbons are Ocean Tides of course. The sentiment is stamped on with SU's Whisper White craft. Again, if you blow up the photo, you should be able to see all of the glitter.
