Wallpaper Card!

I’m not sure why it is, but I have a real “thing” for some of the papers that look like old fashioned wallpaper.  Which is kind of odd considering that we are just in the process of stripping it off the walls of our new home, so that we can paint!  But I really do love just about all of the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers, gorgeous colours and patterns, and I seem to find myself constantly drawn to them for both cards and scrap pages. 

So today’s card uses… yep, you guessed it, one of those old fashioned wallpaper designs 🙂  The layout and colours in the card is inspired by a similar card made by one of my favourite stamp artists Lin Mei Yap

 I have used one of four Limited Edition Stamp Sets available through the Sale-a-bration promotion at the moment, so if you like it and want one, please contact me to find out how you can get one.

Stamp Sets: Botanical Blooms, Three Thoughts

Cardstock: Soft Sky, Whisper White, Designer Series Paper Afternoon Tea.

Inks: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Cameo Coral, Old Olive.

Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Sponge, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon.

    Thanks so much for playing along! Your card is great! I love having new participants in my challenges, so you are always more than welcome!
