The weather yesterday was beautiful. Got into the low 70’s – not hot and not cold. Seemed to be just right as Goldilocks would say – hehe. It is supposed to raid all week – but no rain yet. Woo Hoo. I noticed yesterday that I forgot to put the products that I used to make the card. I will add them today, so if you look at yesterday’s post it will be there. Sorry guys.

Today’s card is a birthday card. I used Old Olive for the base. I then layered with Calypso Coral –  one of the new colors (although it is an in color now) . The stripped card stock came from My Digital Studio, it is calypso coral designer series paper. The doilie is the Teal Lace Doilie that I sponged with Old Olive ink. I used Calypso Coral Washi Tape from the This and That bundle. The banner I used Calypso Coral and dotted it with Old Olive using the marker to make the two tone effect.
