Angelica's Farewell Blog Hop

Welcome to Angelica's Fond Farewell Blog Hop. Angelica Suarez has served as the Design Team/Marketing coordinator for Peachy Keen Stamps  for the past three years, and as many of you may have read from her post here a few days ago, she has made the difficult decision to leave her position  at Peachy Keen to persue a  new and exciting opportunity in the printing industry.


We are sad to see her go, but we know that she will be a tremendous success in this new venture, and we couldn't be happier for her.

So some of the Design Team ladies past and present have put together this blog hop in order to wish her a very fond farewell.
 
If you arrived here from Michelle , you are hopping along in just the right order, but if you started here, then you will want to go back to Peachy Keen Stamps to start at the beginning. Lost along the way Don't worry I will have the Blog List at the bottom of this post

 Here is my card for Angelica
 Untitled

This is a 5x7 Vertical Card
I used  the current Mojo MOnday Sketch #257 for the card layout inspiration 
 http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-0ToaoGIeB70/UEQ0LVq2pgI/AAAAAAAAIrQ/gYdShjBzCvg/s1600/Mojo257Sketch.gif

as well as the following Design Seeds Color Palate and using the closest colors I could find from my stash


http://design-seeds.com/palettes/ArtichokeTones_1.png
This one is called Artichoke Tones

I got my addiction to Design Seeds from Angelica :)
The Pink and only pattern paper is from S.E.I Penelope's Potpourri and is the reverse of Adorned Dots
The green is stamped with Papetrey ink Geometrics Background basics Stamp,
my card base uses the papertrey ink Kraft Cardstock

My Main stamped image is from Peachy Keen Stamps  PK-563 Garden Wheelies
and the sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps "Mini Messages"

I also used the "birds and Swirls","Swiss dots" and "Polka dot" Cuttlebug Folders


 I have a tiny bit of Blog Candy Today.
 I designed an SVG Template for this card  and for my blog hoppers you can download it here. 

I design all of my cards in make the cut to test out the proportions..etc using the basic shapes gallery so I thought I would share my project file with you. For Make-the-Cut users I have added the project to the Gallery using the Tag Angelica_Card, just search for it through your software and you should find it!
