You Make Me Smile

This green and white card stock is my favorite pattern that I've found. I was considering making it my blog background! I love it. Olive green is my favorite color and while this photograph makes it come out a little more apple then olive - it's a little closer to an earthy olive.

I cut the crown at 2 inches (it's the height - which I had forgotten and cut it out MUCH too large initially). It is cut from the Summer in Paris Cartridge™ (noticing a theme? I LOVE this cartridge!). I cut the background out of white and the front out of raspberry and popped the crown with pop dot to give it some dimension.

I embossed the pink layer on the bottom with one of the folders from the A2 Organic Border Emboss Folder™ set. I inked around all edges of the bottom border. I stamped it with the Hero Arts CL272 stamp set (the only one I own! haha) and my card was simple and complete.

Abslotely beautiful! the colours look so nice together. I love your patterned paper who is it made by? I still haven't used my Summer in Paris cart afraid the cuts will be too intricate but yours look so beautiful and cleanly cut that I must take the plunge and have a go!
