DOTS & DASHES BIRTHDAY

Get your sunglasses on for this color combination! It comes from Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #54 - Taken With Teal, Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore, and Whisper White. I combined the color combo with this great sketch from Taylor VanBruggen's Cupckake Challenge #72.

Anyone recognize this designer paper? It's really OLD ... Stampin' Up! retired Dots & Dashes. It felt good to go back and use some of it up! It's so old that it's one sided!RECIPE

That's not old...now I could show you some old SU paper. I've been a demo for 10 years and they didn't even have paper when I first began. You wouldn't believe some of the cards we made in the old days before DSP. Love this card...the colors are bright and I love the corduroy buttons...great way to resurrect some of that "old" paper. You are incredible girlfriend!
