I thought I would try my hand at using the Dakota Paper Pack. It seems like I have gotten side tracked with other business lately. I really needed to create something. Here is a standard card using Dakota as well as Black and Barn Red Cardstock. The stamp set is Casual Expressions (D1525). I tried to distress the sentiment a bit. The white seemed too stark. There are also sparkles from the Black and Grey Assortment (Z1754). Also notice the zip strip from the paper pack. I just love using those. This card will be offered in the "Guy" card workshop next week. I hope the girls like it.
