P.S. I Love You

The weekend is almost over. Sure flew by didn't it? I went and saw Avatar yesterday and wow! What a movie! I think it's the best I've seen and I'm a movie fanatic. I highly recommend it. The story and effects are incredible and it has a really great message. I admit I was on the verge of tears through a lot of it, even shed a few. I love when a movie can bring out so much emotion in its audience.

Anyways, on to the reason of the post. This is my entry for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21. I really like this color scheme. I've used only Papertrey Ink products. Their next release is just around the corner. Did you guys see today's peek? It is so cute and creative! I don't have a single baby set so I know this one will be going into my cart. 

 Okay, back to the card.. I used Aqua Mist cardstock for the card base and Dark Chocolate and Lemon Tart for accent pieces. The XOXO background, envelope, and sentiment are all from my new Love Songs set. The background on the Lemon Tart cardstock, stamped in Dark Chocolate ink, is from Background Basics: Retro. Embellishments include Lemon Tart Swiss Dot Satin ribbon and Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart vintage buttons. I promise the ribbon lays flat. It didn't photograph too well on the right end. 

NFL playoffs have begun. Any other football fans out there? My Cowboys whooped some Eagle tail last night. Yeah!! Well, I'm off to watch the rest of the Ravens and Pats game. Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Really cute! Love Songs is one of those sets I never picked up, but wish I had. I think I'll add it my next PTI purchase.
