You're the Sweetest

Happy Wednesday, y'all.  Do you need a bright cheery card to get you over hump day?  Then you've come to the right place.

New stamps alert!  I got the set Apple of My Eye from the new Occasions catalog because I planned to use it for the baby book I'm working on.  I'm not 100% sure now that I'm going to use it for that, but I did make this super cute card with it so it was still worth getting :)

And there's the inside.  I like the casual font on the sentiments.

So this card fits with the Inkspirational challenge this week:

All the stamps are brand new, and for that matter the patterned paper is pretty new to me as well.  I also used this week's Retro Sketch:

The color combo was my own.  I don't know, for some reason I like Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy, and Pear Pizzazz together.  I thought about stamping something on the Pear Pizzazz layer, but then I thought that would make the card too busy so I just left it as-is.  I do love those diagonal stripes on the Night of Navy piece though :)

Cheers, peeps!

Yes, I do like those colors. So funny -- when I see diagonal stripes, it takes me back to the 70's when it was in style to have a shirt or dress with diagonal stripes. For some reason, I never did get into that -- it just didn't align with my sense of style. But I do like it in crafts projects and scrapbooking. LOVE the colors. I really like navy. But yeah, you took me back to the 70's this morning. Long trip. Ha! Love you!
