Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal, Mellow Moss, and Creamy Caramel.

This card is beautiful! Everything goes together so well.
That stamp set needs to come out of retirement.

What a great way to resurrect this wheel! I loved that set and haven't thought of anything to do with just the wheel alone; thanks for showing this great idea!

Laura (scrapnextras) said...

Love your way around that "crutch", create your own DP! Gorgeous! Love the way you worked these colours!

Silke said...

Fabulous card - love how you used all these wonderful colors!!!

I also have awarded you with the very noble ARTE Y PICO AWARD - which is waiting over on my blog to be picked up!!!

All I can say is that you deserve this one big time!!!

I'm so happy to see your comment about DP. Although I love most of the papers and do have some, I really feel like it lessens the value of a truly homemade card. I also feel that way with the
rub-ons. I just can't get myself to use them. This is just my opinion and not a criticism of anyone's work so please don't take offense, anyone!
