Haiku Pocket Card

This is a pocket card using the brand new Haiku Designer Series Paper (my favorite) and the color scheme suggested in the front of the catalog for the silhouettes style. The Upsy Daisy stamp set is one of the Never before seen stamp sets on sale for 15% off!
I love these cards. They are easy to make and look so sophisticated!
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Paper: Haiku, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla
Ink: Tangerine Tango, So Saffron
Accessories: Apricot Appeal Ribbon, Silver Brads, Stampin Dimensionals
Happy Stampin',

Chat and Challenge 129 and Sorry for the Absence!

Where, O where have I been?
Well, I went to Stampin' Up's convention. Had a blast! There was no internet access there, so I got out of the habit of posting, and the overwhelming pile of laundry and household chores kept me from posting when I got back home :o)
So, I'm back, and I have tons of ideas that I want to post over the next few weeks.
This card was one I did for a demonstrator challenge on Sudsol. If you are a Stampin Up Demonstrator, sign up for a free 2 week trial, and mention my name - you'll love it! If you are not, contact me, and I'll tell you how to become one ;o)
This card uses 2 stamp sets from the brand new Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog: Pocket Silhouettes and Thank you Kindly. The paper is the new Bella Rose DSP, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. I inked all of the edges with close to cocoa, and I used the gorgeous chocolate chip tafetta ribbon around the card.
I hope you enjoy, and I look forward to posting more over the next couple of weeks.
Stampingly yours,
