My Friend

What a fun card this was.  And easy too!  I had a run across a piece of decorative paper in Rose Red.  I was going to toss it but I decided to make a card with it.  Rose Red was not a retired color and I have the ink and the pad so why not run with it? Just because the decorative paper is retired doesn't mean you can't use it.  If you only like to use current papers then you can just replace it with current stuff if you're going to copy this for a swap or Stamp-a-Stack. I do that kind of swapping all the time!

I saw this card at Artfelt Impressions and I knew I wanted to make it.  I believe the original card was done using Crumb Cake for the base of the card and those color tones were used.  I used the Rose Red because of the decorative paper that I found.  I also realized that I had not used this set either.  I had bought the download and used it digitally but never with rubber.  I like both but rubber does have more advantages.  

This was a lot of fun and I love the layout.  I wouldn't hesitate to use it again.  Maybe I'll find more papers if I continue cleaning!!! It's amazing what you do find when you clean.

I was hoping to get done with my stamping stuff early tonight so I could play with some polymer clay.  I have been wanting to make this beautiful cabochon. I saw a pretty rock and I thought I could mix some clays together and make it.  I'll let you know how that goes if I get it done anytime soon.  There's always something that gets in the way.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

This is a lovely CAS card, Wanda. I, too, have been going through my mammoth paper stash and have found LOTS of striped papers - I think, this would be a good use to make several of these in different colors (to match the DSP) and have on hand. And, also, I have the stamp set and have never even mounted it so this will give me incentive!!

I'm glad you used your "old" paper. That is a beautiful card. It's very clean, although maybe not simple.
