My very own designer paper!!!

Hello bloggers,

Saturday is here at last... there is celebration in the air here because Idul Fitri is almost here. 
Happy Idul Fitri to all my friends who celebrate it. May it bring cheer, good health and peace to you and yours.

Here is a card I made last night and it took me forever to match the embellies. Peach is a colour that I don't work much with though I do think it is lovely.




Supplies:

Base cardstock - dual shaded beige
Designer paper - created with Hero Arts designer block, stamped with blush (American Crafts)
Peach paper - from a paper ribbon
Flower - handmade by me on the spot and distressed with clay (American Crafts)
Leaves - from MS border punch (scrap lying on my table)
Pot - die cut from Sizzix using hand made paper, distressed with Tim Holtz old paper
Border punch - MS
Corner punch - Carla craft 
Crushed ribbon  - from my top!!!
Sentiment - handwritten with a slight change in writing


Aren't you impressed with the designer paper?

I am quite pleased with the way this card turned out eventually. Hope you like it as well.


I am going to submit this card for the following challenges:

http://www.sewmanychallenges.com/ - edge punch
http://jellyparkchallenges.blogspot.com/ - punches or die cuts
http://www.phindysplacechallenge.blogspot.com/ - make your own embellishments



Hugs,
Monica

MOnica peach is a lovely color but difficult to make as Ear Wax hardly have the supplies or the embellies. Yours looks good enough to eat!!

I agree Peach is not a colour I normally used. Your card looks so lovely. Really like the paper you created.
