Calypso Fun!

CC flatCalypso Coral ~ such a great color!  It’s a pinky orange and blends with everything,, and it’s pretty prominent in this dsp ~ my fave Cupcakes & Carousels 🙂

CC envieThe nice big sentiment on today’s card is from the Cool Treats set.  I love big sentiments!  It’s stamped on a fun label which is part of the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit (lots of other cool stuff in the kit-check it out!).


I wanted to put some white splotches on the card, but it didn’t come out quite like I had planned…operator error!  I’m going to try to perfect that technique and do it on another card!

Thanks for stopping by today!  All the products used to create this card are listed below!

This is the first time I’ve used the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon and it’s SO pretty!  It’s laid across a 1″ panel of Bermuda Bay card stock.  This is another free item!  On the left of the card is what I’m calling an embellishment nest!  I guess I could have put a little bird in there!  All these sweet embellishments make cards so pretty!
