My card here was also inspired by Dawn but I hesitated to use it for the blog hop because I messed up the border punching (see the half loop on left? ack!) when really everything else was already glued down. Ooops! Anyways, Dawns beautiful sample is from this post (2nd card) last November. Aqua mist, greens and cream, oh my!! Her take on color combos is simply devine!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend everyone :)

This card is for Betsy Veldman's fun paper piecing challenge. Haven't done that for quite some time (I'm just too impatient for hand cutting most of the time) so I thought I'd play along. You should defintively visit the challenge post above! There are so many cute cards linked showcasing paper piecing plus Betsy's one-of-a-kind samples are always worth a visit :)
Thanks for stopping by and happy humpday!

The "good" part about it? Well, I got a little PTI package today :) Comparably a small order consisting only of a few stamp sets and ink cubes (with the new ink formulation *swoon*) and the best is this: it took slightly less than a week to arrive. I'm wowed!! Usually my orders sit at various customs offices for a whole week... Hehe, I totally understand that they all want to have a look at all the yummyness but how can you do that to a crafter waiting for PTI? ;)
Speaking about PTI goodness, my sweet blogging friend Karen celebrates her first blog-o-versary this month (Congrats again!) you *may* want to visit her not only because of the giveaway she has to offer *wink* but also to have a look around at all the cute stuff she (and other family members) makes!
Well, I have to hurry now! My lil' bro needs someone to pick him at the airport and I guess that's me. I told him I'll drive home alone if he doesn't bring some of the wonderful Spanish almond chocolate (either that or spring weather) along so we'll see how that goes. Haha! ;-)
PS: This card was made following CPS sketch #153.

Mhm, I'm still not super pleased with it. Is it possible to emboss on top of already embossed areas? I wonder how the "Be mine" sentiment would look in cream... Anyways, thanks for stopping by!
