While at a recent Stamp and Paper Crafting Show, I found the loveliest pad of papers at a give-away price. I’m always on the lookout for pretty pastels and here was an entire 48 sheet Prima Collection called Pixie Glen for $5! I love it and I’ve used it for this card.
Only after I mentioned to my hubby that it was an odd size did I realize that it is European size paper which is about 8 1/4 inches by 11 5/8 inches instead of our usual 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Perhaps that explains the super low price. Whatever the reason may be, I felt like I had found the mother lode!
I used this paper, plus paper from a Martha Stewart pad that had no name on it but appeared to be a Valentine collection (a Christmas gift from my daughter and granddaughter, purchased at Marshall’s), as well as a piece of brown card stock from my stash. Inks were Distress Spun Sugar and Vintage Photo plus Momento Rhubarb Stalk. I used my Spellbinder’s Fancy Tags Die, Recollections flower and bling. The sentiment was part of a hand-me-down set from my sister, Mary, who kept the bits she liked and sent me the ones I had expressed an interest in some time ago. I have no idea what brand they are but I love the parts she sent to me… all very French!
My sister, Megan, was thrilled to have gotten some comments on my blog! Now she knows why I get so excited when I get comments… hint, hint hint. Blessings & Hugs!
