Isn't this paper amazing? It's from the Back to Black Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!. The pattern is so classic and clean! I found this wonderful sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch and this card just fell into place. Here's the sketch:
I decided to flip the background of the sketch so I could use more of the new delicious DSP :) The dahlia makes a perfect centerpiece, also classic clean design. I just love the Petite Pairs stamp set as all the sentiments in the set fit perfectly inside the Large Oval Punch and that of course pairs perfectly with the Scallop Oval Punch. Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to make awesome cards!
I don't think I have mentioned yet how much I LOVE the new Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad! It provides quick, crisp and complete coverage and dries almost instantly. It is a MUST HAVE in any crafters arsenal :)
I decided a bit of Chevron Ribbon would satisfy one of the elements on the upper left hand corner of the sketch and called it good. But after photographing my card several times, I just wasn't satisfied so I went back and added three Candy Dots. Much better! And I managed to satisfy the last element in the sketch...even better! Love me some Candy Dots!! lol
Please let me know what you think...I love your comments!
