Paper Temptress Hiding in My Craft Room

Happy Saturday everyone!
I'd like to invite you to a brand new challenge at
Our theme this week is
Clean and Simple

I'm so happy to tell you that our fabulous sponsor this week is

One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to spend on some of the most awesome papers you've ever seen and felt.

I need to be completely honest and let you know a couple of things:
1. I'm on the Design Team at Paper Temptress.
2. I'm hopelessly addicted to the papers I've gotten from
Paper Temptress.

I made this card before realizing the incredible glossy black moire paper is no longer available.  (Insert sad face.)  The same great pattern and feel of that paper can be found on the Gold Retro Lustre paper.  The background mat is one of my absolute favorite papers....the Mirrored Reflective cardstock.  It's difficult to get a really great picture of this because it is so reflective.  

Because one of the papers I used in my first card is no longer available (repeat sad face) I repeated the same design using papers available in the Valentine's Day Package.  This is such a phenomenal value any day but from now until February 14 it is on special.  What a fantastic way to try out loads of papers for one really low price!

The picture above shows a bit of the shimmer on the papers.
It's even more gorgeous in person!!

Even the card base is from Paper Temptress.
It's what I color on with my ProMarkers and love it!
The weight is really great for a card base, too.

You can find this card in the following challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays -- Color blocks 
Sweet Pea Stampers -- Flower power
Crafty Girls -- Challenge #9: anything goes
