I made this card last night using up some scraps
and odd pieces of cardstock. What I want to point out though, is the green stripe DP. 

I had all the papers picked out a couple of days ago,
but when the new Summer of Love Kit came, I just had to add at least one of the gorgeous papers from this beautiful kit. I chose American Crafts Confetti - Lucy Lemon Twist. I actually was going to use the front side which is bright lemon yellow and white flowers, but changed my mind when I flipped it over and saw the luscious green.

American Crafts - Confetti - Lucy Lemon Twist

I used the two Spellbinders dies... Lacey Circles and 
Fleur De Lis Squares. Girlfriends came from Crafty Secrets

 This next photo is not to show you how messy I am
when I work, but is to show you my stack of Pixie Dust Paperie Kits there at the right of my desk. A few of them are under my desk on the shelves. What I'm saying is that I use these constantly and have them on hand at all times. I LOVE these kits!

Now, one more photo...
what can I say... the Penmaker has had a great week of creativity!
Hope you have a Happy Day!

This is really pretty Linda, and it is so cool too, you know why, non of us pixie use that side of the paper, including myself, I am so glad to see a beautiful creation with that, that is simply beautiful!
And I happened to love the colors on the pen your pen-maker made too, that aqua blue + green, hmm... reminds me of the mediterranean sea!

re-thanks for your sweet and encouraging words, I know I am getting better in terms of "getting rid of that perfectionist in me" but not quite there yet, but at least i know I won't walk back to tuck the corner of the clothes that peek out of my drawers these days, or line my clothes in similar size and colors, LOL! I will continue to work on that! : )

Let me tell you this; I love your scraps :)
Your card has a nostalgic look that I just love. And these Spellbinders dies are a perfect match with that lovely image.
Your card is stunning; as usual!

And that pen? Sigh...the both of you are so talented and creative!
