Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge 135

Sometimes it can take me FOREVER to design a card.  Then again, sometimes it takes 30 minutes to put one together - like this one using the PPA135 sketch.  I knew I wanted to use the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set again but with the Comfort Cafe DSP.  This sketch turned out to be just the ticket! I really like how diverse this set is.  Remember this card I made using bright colors?  It looks great with either.

Also, check out the stamped images....wonderful coverage using the new firm foam stamp pads.  It just takes a very short learning curve and you will never want to go back!  Here's a video from Stampin' Up! that gives a few pointers.

  2. I love this card but I can't find that paper Cottage Garden that you list as the Designer Paper. Can you tell me what page it is on in the new cattie? Thanks
