A customer request....and a Paper Dolls Challenge #26

Card making is such a stress reliever for me! I love to do it! BUT I love even more making cards for my customers! I have several gals who call and say...I need 5 Thank you cards, I need 4 Birthday's etc! So those custom orders are always so fun!

Here are 2 cards for a customer who picked out her colors from my little swatch book that I carry in my purse! She loves Damask so I knew that would be a hit! She just told me her sentiment needs and I went to work! Here are her cards....

This one is Melon Berry, Dark Chocolate and Rustic Cream. I love the Damask print with the Canvas IP detail!

The base on this one is Blueberry Pie! I didn't know how I was going to work with this color combo but I added some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Ink and "vintaged" it up a little! LOL!  I used Jennifer's sketch HERE for this card!  Stop over to the Paper Dolls blog and join us with Jen's sketch challenge this week!
