Color Throwdown #195

Saturday, June 9, 2012

I love these colors!  Very soft.  Very feminine.  Very me.

I'm appreciating the digital paper files I've been accumulating over the past couple of years, especially since two of the three local scrapping stores have gone out of business.  I know many of you don't even have a local scrapping store, so having one left may seem like a wonderful thing.  The down side is that each of the three tended toward different styles, so we don't have quite the variety from which to choose anymore.
All that to say, that having digi files of DPs is great!  I can print and scrap whenever the mood hits. Yeah!

The papers I've used on this card come from two different sources, Trina Clark at, (floral and check) and Tabea at, (solid pink).
Both of these ladies have wonderful digital scrapping supplies.

I used the Card Patterns Sketch #168 for my layout, but didn't take a photo in time to link up to that challenge.

Stampin' Up!: Card Stock (Barely Banana-retired), stamp, ink, Eyelet Border punch, Top Note die
Sunshine Artz: pink digi paper
Digi Scrap Kits: checked and floral digi papers
Stash: white CS, ribbon, pearls
