Page 35

If you check out page 35 in the Occasions Mini catalog, you will see where I got my inspiration for this card. The color combo is not one I would typically use, but I was trying to keep the color palette to the colors found in the Sweet Pea DSP pack because it is what my Stamps in the Mail customers were to use in their kits. This wasn't how I originally intended to make the card (the DSP/Chocolate base), but I found that I was having a hard time getting the DSP in the Sweet Pea DSP stack to match any of the SU! CS it was supposed to match. This Chocolate Chip sheet was still not an exact match, but it looked the least different. I LOVE this stack of paper, so I hope that everyone's isn't like this!!

I loved the ribbon treatment on the card so basically kept it the same, I just used a different ribbon and button.

The heart stamp set I used is the very same one that SU! has chosen to use in a campaign to raise money for Haiti. You can check out more about that here.
