Flowerpot Birthday - PPA208

A little confession...Garden Green is my least favorite color. Blah. I never use it. Ever. I even challenged myself recently to create a card with that color, no could do. Not even a smidge of Garden Green was allowed to touch any of my cards. Until now.

I saw this cute sketch for the Pals Paper Arts challenge:

and decided to pull out the new Flowerpot Designer Series Paper. I spread all the papers out and was immediately drawn to the pattern that I eventually used for the card base. Such cute polka dots! And how cute it would be next to this awesome green paper...wait, that's Garden Green! Finally! An awesome combination and I get move past my Garden Green block...life is good:)

The rest of the card came together quickly and I was even happier when I realized how well Smoky Slate looked against the green! I decided it needed a baker's twine bow and of course...Candy Dots! lol

Have you been enjoyed the peeks at the new Designer Series Papers this year? If so, hold on to your hats because next month you will be able to get one pack FREE with the purchase of three. That's a savings of $10.95! So start making your list...

Thank you for stopping by and if you would, please let me know if you have issues with a particular color...I know lots of people had issues with Summer Starfruit but I personally loved it :)
