Oops, forgot the title!

Something a bit different from my usual creations, this card uses the bright and zingy Sweet & Sour Speciality Designer Series Paper. What’s so special about it? Well, you can’t see from the photo but one side of each sheet has a glossy finish. Not all over, that would be too much. But on this piece, for instance, some of the circles are glossy and raised. My favourite sheet is the one that’s in the bottom centre in the catalogue (p88) – the whole of that large swirl is glossy. I don’t have much of that though as I only have a tiny piece leftover from the paper share and making my paper sampler.

The colours are what give the paper its Sweet & Sour name. I probably would never have put Pumpkin Pie with Rose Red without the influence of this paper.

The stamp set is Hello Again, which is such a bargain – and great for beginner stampers. I stamped the flowers in a row in Rose Red and then again on a piece of scrap Whisper White in Pumpkin Pie. I cut out the centres and popped them up.

This is quite a big card (14.5cm square) so I decorated the inside, too!
