Color Couture Cards

When Papertrey Ink introduced Dawn's Color Couture embellishments, I was in love!! Of course, I bought Volumes 1-3 right away.  I hadn't used them much because they were on a shelf where I didn't see them much and I never seemed to have the time to cut them out.  Well, last night I sat down with my trusty Cutterbees - while my husband was watching a show that I didn't care about -  and I just started cutting away!  I am happy to say that I now have all of Volumes 1-3 cut out, and yes, my hand hurts a little!  Now I have to buy Volumes 4-6!

I LOVE this color scheme!  And I finally got to add some ruffly ribbon to a card!
I am loving this polka dot stamp from the Round and Round set!  (Go figure!)

For those of you who saw my previous two posts, I have an update...my friend had a baby boy this morning!!  Can't wait to meet him.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the ribbon! I bought the first Color Couture and it is still sitting in a drawer, untouched. Think I'll do what you did and cut things out while watching TV. Great idea!
