Haiku Blossoms

Good Morning and what a chilly one it is here in Sydney!  Its 9am and it hasnt even got to 8C (50F) yet!  Its times like these you thank God for giving people the brains to invent things like gas heaters!

Its Saturday again so that means another Utah Divas International Sketch from the lovely Carol.

Now it wasnt until after I’d finished my card that I realise that maybe this one was supposed to be rotated into a landscape card going on the way the bow is but hey I always change something right?

Here is my card ….

I thought too with our Deals of the Week I’d use some of the Haiku DSP in my card.

Stamps: Asian Artistry
Paper: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Haiku DSP
Inks: Jet Black Stazon, So Saffron, More Mustard, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Apricot Appeal Grosgrain Ribbon

I’ve had this paper for a little while and not used it so I thought that this was the perfect opportunity!

It also goes so well with the lovely Asian Artistry Hostess Set which I’ve been wanting for a while.

Dont forget this week’s deals finish on Tuesday night so if you want some of the following Designer Series Papers please be sure to ring me before Tuesday to place your order.
