I started my card base with neutral papers from the Marigold Collection. I wanted a pop of color in my design - I decided on mint - so I added a small panel of mint striped vellum (this paper is called Blue Bells ).
Pretty Little Studio has lots of clear sheets that you can use to accent your designs. It's magic how you can layer them over a pattern paper and see it peek through the clear layer. The file tab on the right edge of my card with the word print is actually a clear sheet. If you look close you can see the chevron print peeking through the words.
I love adding doilies to my designs - there are several to choose from in the store. For this one I used half of a Cambridge 4" doily. I'll be saving the other half for another project - a great way to stretch your supplies!
