Parisian Dreams

Here's another card made of the recent Inklings team weekend, utilising another set from the stamp library. I really like the Dreams du Jour set but other things always seem to bump it down the wishlist. When I saw it on the stamp librbary table I snapped it up thinking "this will go nicely with the Parisian Breeze paper"... It was only later, as I was assembling the card, that I realised how well they work together - the main flower on the stamped images is an exact match for flowers in the paper! This one is a very simple card because I just couldn't bear to cover the paper up, it's a gorgeous colour combination, pattern and texture as the Parisian Breeze DSP is a heavier weight than Stampin' Up!s standard DSP.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Kraft
Stamp Set: Dreams du Jour
Inks: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP, Chalet Ribbon Originals, Eyelet Border punch, scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, dimensionals, In Color "marker", white gel pen
