Dandelion News

Dandelion wishes.  Daily news.  Two sets that were previously uninked: Background Basics Newsprint and Botanical Silhouettes... now on their way to being well-loved.

This card is a bit simpler and I am still needing to sit on my hands to leave it alone.  I do like that it will be easy to mail. The colors were inspired by this week's CR84FN Color Challenge.  Two neutrals with some buttery, golden yellow... fabulous.


I'm also including it over at The Shabby Tea Room.  I added my polka-dots especially for them.  Speaking of the patterned paper... it's a new line called Sunshine from My Mind's Eye and I am absolutely smitten.

ALL Supplies are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Background Basics Newsprint, Botanical Silhouettes, Little Labels; Ink: SU! Soft Suede, Basic Gray and Crushed Curry; Cardstock: Kraft and Rustic Cream; Patterned Paper: Sunshine from My Mind's Eye; Tools: Button Card and Little Labels dies; Sassy Somethings: Harvest Gold buttons and SU! Linen thread
