Studio Calico + Lawn Fawn

I see so many people who love Studio Calico.  So I decided to get a Studio Calico 6x6 paper pad and see what all the fuss was about.  It's different than the bright pattern paper I'm typically drawn to so I wasn't sure how I would feel about it (although I'm not very good about using the bright pattern paper anyway).  Turns out, I love it!  I used a few of the patterns from the Autumn Press pad along with some Lawn Fawn to create this simple birthday card. 


I think the color palette is just lovely.  I used Bisque Liquid Pearls and Rock Candy Distress Stickles for my accents. And it seems I am incapable of making a card without some twine or ribbon, so I added a little of that as well. :)  I'm looking forward to using some more of the lovely papers in this pad.  I also got some Mister Huey's too and I'm looking forward to trying those out as well.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you all have some fun things planned for your weekend.  Me and the hubby are headed to a pumpkin carving party tonight and then hopefully the corn maze tomorrow night. The leaves are peaking and it's a Fall-tastic weekend here in the mountains.

  4. Love this card! The color of those flowers is beautiful, and the pearls/stickles are a great accent. I've managed to resist the paper so far, but it is on my wish list!
