Paper Craft Crew 170 and HSS 224

It feels like ages since I played with the Paper Craft Crew but I liked this week's sketch so much, I just had to make time for it.

The colour combination at Hand Stamped Sentiments was one I hadn't used exactly like this, although I've had a love affair with Blackberry Bliss for some time now, so this was instantly appealing. My fellow DT member, Jane Knudsen, at As You See It Challenge has used Delightful Dijon as a card base recently and it has made me look at that colour in a whole new light. So it is my card base today.

The combination lead here ....
