This was using Polka Dot Punches set from Sale a Bration 2009. After deciding on my color combo (kiwi kiss, pale plum, perfect plum), I made my own patterned paper. Stamping the different images with different colors. Then I matted my DIY patterned paper on pale plum cardstock and mounted it onto my card base. It is finished off with kiwi kiss ribbon and kiwi kiss button next to the sentiment combo.
Recipe for this card:
Cardstock: whisper white, pale plum, perfect plum
Ink: kiwi kiss, pale plum, perfect plum, basic gray
Stamp set: Polka Dot Punches, All Holidays (sentiment)
Sweet touches: kiwi kiss grosgrain striped ribbon, button bouquet, linen thread, 1 1/4" circle, eyelet border punches, dimensionals, curly punch.
