I wonder if I order stamping things just because I love to open the boxes. There is something so...so...so... well, I don't know what the emotion is, but there it is every time I open a box with color pouring out.
Ripe Avocado is one of Papertrey's October releases. It is a beautiful color, and one I think I will go to often. The ribbons are some of the best PTI has released to date.
'Regal' was the word that came to me as I was undoing the ribbons- and that reminded me of the Anna Griffen style. I had some of her paper and stamps, and lo and behold- the 2 new colors looked pretty good with this one!! I also used SU's So Saffon (or was it Apricot Appeal??) and the threading Water punch by Fiskars. I sewed a thread through the center of the Swiss Dots ribbon, and pulled at both ends to get the ruched ribbon. 97 glue dots hold the bow in place.
Since I work with babies and new moms, I know what the card is all about~ but let me know if you think I should put a little bald head sticking out of the basket, lol lol!!
