Dreams Du Jour

My first set from the new catalog was Dreams Du Jour. It reminds me of the old labels on packages and feed sacks.

This card was inspired by a card that one of my good friends Susan sent me for my birthday. I know that Susan used her Scor-Pal to do the scoring on the white cardstock... however I used my scoring blade and my Fiskars cutter. Pacific Blue is my favorite of the new In Colors. I paired it along with Kiwi Kiss to create a cool color palette for this card. A gold brad and some Old Olive (but it looks pretty kiwi to me) wide grosgrain ribbon gives the card some texture.

Sets: Dreams Du Jour
Ink: Basic Black (Pacific Blue, Kiwi Kiss to watercolor with)
Cardstock: Pacific Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Accessories: Dimmensionals, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Gold Brad, Fiskars Cutter

This is so pretty. I love the new blues and can't decide which is my favorite.

Gorgeous card. I love the embossed background.
