Stamp TV Sketch Challenge32

Hello, Well this is the last card I have to post this week. I made this card for Stamp TV's Sketch Challenge 32
The stamp set is A Year in Flowers by Melanie Muenchinger. The rose is stamped with SU Rose Red and colored with Copic Markers RV32 and RV34. The stem and leaf are stamped with SU Always Artichoke and colored with Copic markers YG03 and YG23. The ribbon is SU Rose Red. The base card is Pure Luxury Green Apple. The DS paper is Vintage Holly Quarters from Stamp TV. I love this paper. It is digital paper and it so easy to use. I like that it is light weight. That makes is so easy to work with. The brown on the edge is on it when you print it. You just go on line to Stamp TV buy it and it is sent to you right away. You print it and your ready to go. It would be great if that is how I got all my paper. Just think of how much space I would have in my scrap room. Unfortunately I love paper. When I go into a scrapbook store and see something I think is pretty, cute or different and I just have to have it. I don't always know what I am going to do with it but I buy it anyway. I really, really like this paper. The best part is that I can make it anytime I want. The paper comes in quarters. That means there are four different prints on a sheet and they are the perfect size for a card.
I am not sure I will have a chance to make a card until Sunday. Saturday I am going of a bus trip to scrapbook stores with a very dear friend. It is an all day event starting with breakfast and a make and take at the Scrapbook Super Store in Madison. I am very excited about it. I have a feeling it is going to make my credit card melt from over use. Oh well what's a girl to do.
Thanks for stopping. Please let me know you were here and what you think.

This is just so beautiful Linda. I was fascinated with all your info on the digital paper...I wonder is it more cost effective to print your paper and use up ink and paper or to buy it? It looks fantastic on your card.

Hi Linda

You are not alone with your passion for paper, I also but just because I like witout a clue what I am going to do with it. But it is lovely to just look at.

I am really getting a linking for these SU stamps, I don;t have any but am very tempted when I see lovely images coloured in as beautifully as this one.
