Happy News Card

Hello and happy Saturday! This afternoon my hubby is out running errands, so I'm playing in my craft room. Even though I have the house to myself a lot... I'll always take extra time to play, especially when it's hot outside.

This Happy News Card features my favorite new stamp set called Abstract Impressions in the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog. I used it earlier this week and ever since I've been wanting to use it with the new purple colors: Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. The greens are also both new colors and include: Call Me Clover and Granny Apple Green. The layout was cased from an example card in the annual catalog on page 5. I don't have the punch shown in the example, so I added some banners and matted my focal area for extra color. To add some stamping to the banners the Timeless Textures stamp set was used and a little white twine bow finishes it off.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
