I Love Picadilly Paper

I am in LOVE! 

Yup, true, head-over-heels in love!  I opened my 12x12 package of Picadilly Paper Collection from BasicGrey .... oh my!!! Have you seen all the lovely papers in there??!!  It makes me want to run out and buy a second package to keep so I can use this package ... how bad is that?

So when I saw this wonderful inspiration photo from Jay Gee's Nook - Challenge #16, I knew what to do!

Ahhhhhh, simply beautiful with minimal work on my part .. the papers did all the work!!
And since I used such lovley papers, I'm also entering this into the Pattern Paper Challenge over on Lily Pad Cards blog. 

The sentiment is from Half & Half (Papertrey Ink), the yellow crochet thread was actually white that I dyed yellow to fit the theme, and a black button (PTI) to finish the whole thing off!  I hand cut the panel that the sentiment is on and drew the black line around it free hand. 

Okay, off to create many, many more cards with these beautiful papers ... LOVE I tell ya!!

Hi Donelda, I've just joined your followers, not sure why I hadn't before now!!
This card just blows me away, even if the papers do all the work you still had to select them and what an awesome job you did..... I can't stop looking at's going on my pinterest board too :0)
