I wanted to do a card in blues like the sky and Bashful blue DPS was the right color.
I use Bashful blue card stock along with Night of Navy. Circle punch, oval punch and scallop oval punch. The Oval all stamp set I used for Best Wishes.

I just love the Raspberry Tart DP from SU and I decided to use it on this card...the card stock is Pink pirquette, kiwi kiss, Big shot die beautiful butterflies, pearls and brads, and satin ribbon kiwi kiss.
