Echo Park takes the cake!

  I am a huge fan of Echo Park paper collections.  My very first Echo Park collection was "a walk in the park"; that collection is still one of my most beloved of all Echo Park collections.  I have been crafting for about twelve years and I have many paper collections in my stash, but I never demolished a collection and reduce it to small scraps like I did with "a walk in the park"....until now.  I think I may have even fewer scraps of Echo Park's "For the Record" that I used to create this card.  My background paper (red damask) is also Echo Park "This & That" collection.  I purchase all of my Echo Park at Shop Pumpkin Spice.

My inspiration came from the Nancy Damiano color challenge:


  I hope your Memorial Day weekend was fun and relaxing...did you have a chance to craft?  I played with paper for most of weekend and I am off to play some more.

Supplies:
paper:  Echo Park For the Record "Lace Stripes", "Picket Fence"; Echo Park This & That Graceful "Quilt"
stickers:  Echo Park element stickers (sentiment) and alpha stickers (aqua border strip)
Cricut cartridges:  Elegant Edges p.50 (nested circles); Sweethearts p.64
mini brads in black

Happy Tuesday!
