One week to go!

It's hard to believe that there's only one more week left to Sale-a-Brate!  Do you have a favourite free product from this year's selection? One of my favourites would definitely have to be the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper.
One of my lovely customers challenged me to use the black pattern on a card, and this is what I came up with:

Black can be a tricky colour to work with, and this is quite a busy pattern. I've tried to balance it out by keeping the rest of the card quite simple. I've used the strong, simple design of lanterns in matching colours (Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding). I love the "Happy Congratulations" stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue... the pretty lanterns work for any occasion. I've made mine a birthday card, using a sentiment from "Wetlands".

TIP: a little paper piercing around the Large Oval Punch adds a border - a nice finishing touch when your sentiment is a little small for the punched area. I've also added a tiny heart from the Owl Builder Punch.
