Congrats...

Ah,finally Friday! Woot! Today I have a quick post with a card I made just because I wanted to use the new SU In Colors again. I totally love the Calypso Coral. It's such a bright, deep, rich color - almost like Papertrey's Melon Berry, but a bit brighter. The ribbon IS Melon Berry and matches quite well. Just an FYI in case you were curious.  :)





I WILL say that the picture doesn't do that color justice. I could not get a picture that totally captures just how bright the color is. You'll have to see for yourself. :)


I decided to emboss the "congrats" from Papertrey's new Congrats All Ways set in white on the SU patterned paper. I think it turned out pretty well. 


Well, that's it from me. I hope you have great plans for the weekend. This is the last weekend for summer because school starts here on Monday! We'll probably do some last minute clothes shopping and watch lots of Harry Potter and Twilight. Laters!!

Very pretty, Keva. I like how you embossed the sentiment on patterned paper. And the little sprig of flowers in the bottom corner is the perfect finishing touch.

What a lovely card! I got four of the new SU! in colours (just not the green) and am really liking the Calypso Coral as well.

This is such a beautiful card Keva. I love that paper with the melon berry ribbon, but my favorite part is the embossed Congrats. It is beautiful and really striking. I could kick myself for not getting that set. It is beautiful embossed over patterned paper.
