DreamThyme



Today's card reminds me of something, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Munchkinland? The North Pole? Dunno.

I went to the vault and pulled out an unopened pack of True Thyme for the base of this card (forgot how much I love that brownish green color!), and paired it up with Ruby Red and River Rock. How I wish for a wider range of reds to choose from! What's on your new color wish list?

I am such a bad Stampin' Up girl, too. I finally get around to making what I thought was a Stampin' Up Only (SUO) card and what do I do, I use stuff that's been retired, and I stick dew drops on the flower centers. Sorry! I'm sure you could substitute Artichoke or Olive (think Dashing dp, in fact), and leave off the dew drops to keep it current SU-only.

Happy stamping!



Stamps: Live Your Dream, Polka Dot (SU!)
Paper: True Thyme (retired), Ruby Red, Whisper White, River Rock card stock
Ink: True Thyme, Ruby Red, Mellow Moss
Accessories: True Thyme stitched ribbon, dimensionals, small oval punch, paper piercer, dew drops, photo corner punch, corner rounder

This is fabulous! I love your design and how you cut out the flower image. I haven't used True Thyme in a year - better get it out. Just great Amy.

This is beautiful, Amy!! I'm with you on the reds ~~ we need a "dark red". Not burgundy, but something darker & not as bright as Real Red!

Amy, this card of yours is just stunning! I adore this color combination and am quite sure I can find a piece (or pack!) of leftover True Thyme to pair with Ruby Red and River Rock. Brilliant!! TFS!
