Basically, It's A Calypso Party!

Ok silly title, but it made me chuckle! This card is for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #250 to use these gorgeous colours, for Viva La Verve's Sketch #1 for May and for F4A166 to use a hand written sentiment, not stamped, not computer generated, but hand written. Now despite being a teacher, my hand writing is not so neat when it's bigger, so 4 attempts later and this is the best ya got!

And here's my card.


Stamps: Daydream Medallions, Mixed Bunch both from Stampin' Up

Papers: Calypso Coral, Basic Grey, Pool Party, Whisper White, 2011-13 In Colors DSP Stack all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Calypso Coral, Basic Grey, Pool Party all from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Large Pearl, Floral Frames Framelits, Everyday Enchantment Calypso Coral Ribbon (Retired) all from Stampin' Up

And that's all form me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
