Pretty paper studio ,
successfully run by our very own previous DT member 

Time for the inspiration parade --

She actually did two projects for this challenge, but I chose this one to feature.  I love the die cut negatives backed with different papers.  I love the letterpress on the sentiments and use of twine.

Melissa did the cutest card, with some ombre on the skirt.  She mattes it with contrasting colours and added neutral rolled paper flowers as embellishments.  She even backed the card with wire for texture.

Pooja created another gorgeous card here with different shades of pink.  Love the combination of color and shape, with the hand cut look of the diamonds.  Of course, you can never go wrong with a doily and a few jewels on top.

I love the way all the cards turned out.  I sort of made a card as well and added it to the center of a layout for my project.  I painted some yellow ombre stripes with my new watercolor set and then punched out circles and butterflies.  I added a few buttons and stickers for dimension and texture.

If u thought u Can go wrong with shades of glitter , think again!!
I love how the ombre is the central focus of this card.
And the dies are a heart stealer !

It is a relatively simple concept, easy to achieve, but with striking results.  I hope you'll play along!
