Little Paper Shop Release Day!

Today's the new releases from Little Paper Shop. I've been loving the Anime styling of these newest LPS sweeties. I have a couple more projects to show you with 'em. Today a simple card with more "magic pattern."

design team

Gotta love a colour challenge! The fabulous Julie challenged the DT gang to a colour combo with a twist. The colours: pink & green & kraft. What a fun combo that turned out to be! (Though I cheated and added turquoise for the sky.

The twist? You have to use punches on your card. It appears I also cheated on that one. (Look Ma, no punches!) I didn't rebel on purpose, though; must've just had my head in the clouds, because I plum forgot. Clearly, I'm no challenge angel! teeheehee

Okay bad pun purgatory is over, sorry (or am i?--muahahahahahHAaaah. ;o)

Been dreaming of some new stamps?
These new releases are on sale until Monday July 20th...

So dang pretty Mel, how I love the happy colours in this challenge! I am overlooking the no punches slip up because I think once I didn't do something on a challenge......I think.......once.....

So cute. I'm still not getting your posts. I don't understand why because I'm a subscriber and always got them. Did something change a while ago with the blogger system?
