I haven’t used Matchbox Messages(113800) for a long time and felt that it would work very well for the simple message on this card.
Stacey’s colour challenge is to use Early Espresso, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla and I feel that they all combine to make a very rich looking project.
The Square Lattice Die added some great texture to the Peach Parfait layer and I felt that a little of the Island Oasis Designer Series paper added a little something extra.
The message box was stamped first with Pear Pizzazz and then the message was added from the clear-mount set “Afterthoughts”(120121). The edges needed a little something, something, so I sponged them with Peach Parfait.
I’m loving the new Early Espresso 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, it looks almost like velvet in the picture. I added the lovely bow with a little help from Lee Conrey’s Magic Bow maker.
