COTTAGE WALL THOUGHTS & PRAYERS

I think it's fair to say that Cottage Wall Designer Paper is one of my favorites designer paper packs in the new Stampin' Up! catalog! It's color combination of Rich Razzleberry (new In Color), Orchid Opulence, and Old Olive is fantastic!

I sat down to play along with Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #27 last night. I didn't stay within the exact guidelines of the sketch but was definitely inspired by it!

The tree was stamped by inking it with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers. Isn't it so cool that Stampin' Up! offers Markers in all the new In Colors this year?!

I also wanted to point out that the ribbon I used is the 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. The polka dot ribbon next to polka dot and striped designer paper was too much pattern for me, so I used the reverse solid side of the ribbon .... so versatile!
