SU Secret Garden and SU Simply Sketched

I used my first piece of DSP from the new  SU catalog today! Do you ever find yourself  reluctant to cut into DSP  because it is so pretty?  I really like a lot of the prints in the Gingham Garden especially the Island Indigo. I paired it up with the SU Secret Garden stamp set and a sentiment from Simply Sketched (again, love it!). I used The Paper Players # 151 sketch to lay out the card. Hope you enjoy the deep, bright colors;)

    1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a fun comment- You make me smile when you like something;) I just reorganized my DSP and realized there is enough to wallpaper the living room!!

  1. Cindy, This card is stunning. Such a clean and classy interpretation of the sketch. Truly beautiful. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week.

  2. I chuckled at your comment about being reluctant to cut into a piece of DSP, Cindy. I do the same thing. I have to be REALLY sure it is going to work on a project before I bring it to the paper trimmer. Haha! I just love how the gingham background really adds the perfect pop to your card. The pearl detail on the flowers is gorgeous, too. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Anne Marie. I am a little more at ease with my off-brand papers but my luxurious SU DSP is so special because it coordinates so beautifully!

  3. This is gorgeous, Cindy! I love how the mambo pops against all the pretty island indigo! The pattern is beautiful and I love how you’ve trimmed the label framelit! Thank you for playing along with my sketch at The Paper Players!

    1. Thanks, Nance. I have really fallen in love with that gingham print! I think I may be using this sketch again soon. Loved everyone’s inspiration from it!

      1. This is a great sketch, so spilme yet so stunning. I love the beautiful and bright card – it makes me feel really cheery and warm in the middle of our lovely English summer (yep, still raining!)

  5. A perfect card, Cindy! It’s clean and cute. Of course, I am partial to the pearl flower centers. The border was a great design choice. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!
