Everyday Enchantment

Happy New Year's Everyone! I had a nice little break over the holidays and finally sat down this week to start creating again. I really couldn't wait to get home today, snap some pictures and get this card uploaded. Have you ever been that excited????

I'm that excited because I get to share a Sneak Peek of one of the upcoming Sale-A-Bration products...the Everyday Enchantment Paper Pack. I know I s
ay this ALL the time, but I think this is my new favorite paper. The colors are gorgeous and it's got the perfect vintage feel.

My card is inspired by a card that Nichole Heady had created. Her
card had a simple design that showcased a couple different strips of paper. Perfect for my new papers, right??


I sat down, spread all the papers out and decided on these three prints. There are plenty that I could have used, but I love the contrast that these have together. The designs have a sponged edge already, so I sponged the Crumb Cake base and the focal image with a bit of Crumb Cake ink to blend everything together.

My photo allows you to take a peek inside the card. I never do this, but I even added a bit of the paper to the inside. Did I mention I love this paper???? Yep, having it on the front just wasn't enough ;-)

Keep your eyes open. This DSP and the beautiful Kindness Matters stamp set will be available for Free in the upcoming Sale-A-Bration catalog when you purchase $50 in product. They are both must haves! Hope you all like the card and enjoy your weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
