A Very Satisfactory Combination

This is my second post for today, and possibly not the last.

To go along with this back to school challenge, was this one from Wee Memories.

And FINALLY, this great sketch from the Simon Says Stamp Challenge

OK, that all being said, here is the card

This was a great colour scheme, I had reservations but love the plum with Kraft.  It really does pay to have stuff lying all over your desk as it tends to get more use ie the patterned kraft paper.  Well that's my excuse for not tidying up often enough.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI Kraft;  SU Perfect Plum, So Saffron, white; X-press It Blending Card
DSP - SU Neutrals Pattern Stack
Stamps - MFT a la modes "You Rule"
Ink - Memento Sweet Plum, Tuxedo Black
Copics - E000, 00, 01;  E55, 57;  C0;  V12, 15, 17, 91;  Clear Spica pen
Die - PTI medium scallop
Ribbon - SU So Saffron Grosgrain
Button - PTI
Paper Twine - Annabelle Stamps


  1. Oh wow I love this card!! You're right the colour combo is fantastic :)

  2. Yes indeed, that is a great color combo--I might have to try it myself! This is a really darling card--you have combined the challenges perfectly! The MFT stamp is so cute and you have colored it so well. I could see this one in the pages of a card magazine, for sure!

  6. Oh dear, this means I need to pick up my game and get some AWESOME teachers' cards made, if this is what mine will be compared to! LOL. End of year is approaching way too fast, eek!
    I love your teacher stamp, great colouring too.
