Ice cream colours....yum

This card started with the backing paper. This is a piece I've been saving for ages just because I liked it. You know that feeling right? Keeping some piece of card, or paper or stash because you like it too much? Well I'm fighting the urge and using my stash at the moment. I've got waaaaay too much, so I have to use some before I get any more.

The flowers are punched, and I used brown to make the colour scheme a little bit less sickly, lol.

Stamp- Sweet Pea's Purple Woods
Promarkers- Vanilla, Ivory, Saffron, Cool Grey 1 &2,  Pastel Pink, Cocktail Pink, Antique Pink, Cocoa, Terracotta, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow
Papers, pearls and ribbon from stash

I'm entering this into:

Papertake Weekly challenge- Ice cream colours (neopolitan!!!)
Sweet Pea Stampers- Sketch

  5. Hello Lisa! Yes my desk is way too tidy I agree! I cant help myself, I am compelled to tidy everytime I leave my desk! I get on my own nerves with it sometimes. I love this card, the papers really nice! Its so hard to use the good stuff innit?? Kills me too, but your right my stash is mounting up & I must start to use it!! before another paper shopping spree! Is that a stamp you have used for the image? it!

  7. I certainly know what you mean, I tend to hold on to papers so long that by the time I get to use them I can't remember what they are!
    I love this stamp and you've coloured her beautifully.
