Thank You with Designer Paper

I love beautiful papers & used to buy a lot of 12x12 sheets when I had stamp stores in my area. Mostly, however, I just admire them--haha! One of my more recent acquisitions is the MME Fancy That pad with shades of pink & gray with gold--couldn't resist!  Mojo Monday has prizes every first Monday & I'm planning to play along with as many as I can this year.  This week's sketch looked doable for me & Teresa's DT card made me pull out that MME pad & my still unopened Verve stamp set & matching dies (Dream Big) from a gc won late last year.  The bloom is heat embossed with Encore gold, the leaves are stamped in PTI Melon Berry & the sentiment is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. The quality of these stamps is outstanding & I'd love to get more! So fun to attach enamel dots & tiny gems in a random fashion--not my usual--inspired by the paper's flower centers.  Don't you love ending up with a card you really like?! This could almost be called trendy, which I never accomplish!  The sweet birds let me also enter at Twofers, although they may not count being in the background.  First use of my new Verve products so I can also enter these challenges: Inkspirational, SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday, along with Anything Goes at Word Art Wednesday.  This card is for all of you who offer me your friendship & support--such a blessing.

  9. You combined these papers so pretty. I love all the black gems in the center of the flower. My goal this year is to use my pattern paper. Like you, I have so many single sheets of 12 x 12 and I don't know how many 6 x 6 pads and don't use any of it. This card has inspired me! Thank you.
