Phew! A picture!

Borrowed my Mum’s camera for a couple of pix. Don’t think she’ll need it back for a few days either – phew! ('Cos I don't have a scanner any more.)

I’ve been playing around with my new Polka Dots & Paisley stamp set, which is great fun. You probably can’t tell from the picture but the green layer is popped up with dimensionals (foam dots), as is the flower layer, making it quite a 3D card.

The block of patterned paper is from the Prints Designer Series Papers in Certainly Celery because, as I may have mentioned, Certainly Celery is one of my favourite colours. So this pack of papers is perfect for me as you get two each of six double-sided designs; the hardest part is deciding which side of the paper to use!

The strip of patterned paper comes from the Petals & Paisleys collection which co-ordinates perfectly with this stamp set, although the stripes will go with anything. But the flower image from this stamp set is used in some of the sheets of paper, as is the design from the Petals jumbo wheel. I love how Stampin’ Up! products all go so well together!
