  3. Ubbbbbber elegant card my friend.

  4. What an elegant card Brian. Your little sprig is the icing on the cake for this one. You’re right when you say this is a fabulous pack of DSP. Every sheet is just gorgeous and so is you card today. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you so much, Grace! I’ve really enjoyed playing with this paper – the patterns can be overpowering, but they are really special when use the right way. ♥

  5. Perfection!

  6. Love the green toile. Have only played with the red so far. This card is so elegant with the soft seafoam contrast. Just beautiful!

  7. Using the green toile along with the other solid greens really makes a pretty card. Hope you’re enjoying a beautiful day. It is lovely here.

  8. That toile hasn’t inspired me yet…… but it definitely inspired you! Lovely card!

    • There are some really great patterns in the paper – it’s tricky to find the right stamps and dies to go with it. It’s probably best as a background behind a panel, but I love it! ♥ Thanks, Linda!

  10. I love toile! And this paper makes the most beautiful traditional Christmas card! Wonderful work! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
