Damask Diva's April Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends! I sure hope y'all are the enjoying the 
Damask Diva's Close To My Heart team blog hop! This month we
are featuring the Ariana Paper Pack! If you came here from
Shirley Bernal's blog then you are in the right place! If you have just
now stumbled upon our hop please visit the Damask Diva's 
blog where you can start from the beginning!

To be honest, Ariana was one of out new paper packs that I didn't think
that I would be purchasing. I think it was something about the big
floral print that made me think "old lady." Well I decided to 
buy it anyways, thought it might be good for some mother's day cards.
Well when I got it out and started playing with it, I fell in love
with it! The big floral pattern that I thought was a turn off has ended
up as my background paper on quite a few cards! This is the one
pack that I might actually order another one of!

For this card I followed one of this month's sketches from Viva la Verve.
For the base I used some Slate cardstock cut to be a 5.25 x 5.25
 square card. The stamps I used are from the new
  Mother's Day stamp set. I inked my stamps with Exclusive Ink in
 Crystal Blue and Outdoor Denim. I then added
some pink Flamingo Dots for some dimension.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation and I hope y'all are inspired by all
the creations by the Damask Diva's using Ariana paper!
Now it's time to head on over to Tammy Smith's blog to keep on hopping!
