Pink Petticoat challenge

Liz, of Pink Petticoat fame, set a nice blog challenge recently to create a new look with her papers using our printers. I made a tablecloth!

I opened, rotated and printed striped duck-egg blue paper of her Lola's Boudoir kit in Word, so that the stripes were quite compact. I then repeated the process with pistachio stripes, et voila!

The cakes and the 'plate' are from her Cupcakes kit printed on a washed out duck-egg blue background, then layered onto another duck-egg blue background. The cups are part of a font from
Scrapnfonts , again coloured and layered.

I've printed the stripes using the pistachio and pink, which will make a very cute little girls dress on a card sometime in the near future - or maybe a picnic blanket!

By the way, my source of card blanks has dried up (why, Lakeland Ltd? How could you do this to me? sniff...), so if anyone could recommend a new source of excellent quality blanks I would be really, really, really grateful. Or does everyone make their own - and if so where do you get your card? Liz - may be this is another query that could be added to your mini forum along with the printer question (which I was very interested to read by the way)?

I'm off to add Liz's lovely new logo to my blog (if I can remember how...)
