PPA106 - Dress for Success - Mocha Morning Specialty

Time flys and it's already another week at the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This week's challenge is Dress for Success. To join the fun click here to go to the challenge. It's fun!!!

Here is the challenge: Dressing for Success is easy as 1-2-3 this week at Pals Paper Arts.  Follow our simple recipe to success:  Use 1 piece of designer series paper, 1 punch and 1 sentiment. 

For this card, I used the embossing folder, Framed Tulips to give the card a frame and than since I love this DSP paper, Mocha Morning Speciality, I couldn't resist.

For the sentiment, I used Early Espresso Ink and an image from the stamp set called: Tagtastic which is a hostess set which can be earned for only $10.00. You can't beat that!! Also, I can use this card for most occassions with the saying "Just for You". 

Added some basic pearls, but the paper itself is elegant if you don't want to add more to it.
For the punch, I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch to go accross under the strip of black.

Hard to tell in the photo, but the card was sponged lightly with Soft Suede Ink all the way around on the outside. Stampin dimensionals were used to pop up the saying and I sponged around it using: Soft Suede ink.

Complete List of Supplies:
  • Stamp Set - Tagtastic (122747)
  • Inks - Early Espresso (119670), Soft Suede (115657)
