Use up that DSP, Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop #23

I'm always on the look out for ways to put designer series papers (dsp) to good use. The right pattern, in the right layout, can create the perfect base for deceptively quick to put together card.

This layout here for instance, would work with any of those bigger, bolder patterns in your stash.  It really showcases the beautiful imagery in the papers, while a few simple embellishments and a single embossed sentiment give the maker a well-deserved sense of creative accomplishment!

I'm sharing this project today for the Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop. It's our challenge this month to inspire you to pull out your stash of retired dsp and put them to good use. Click the 'next' link below to visit  Linda's blog for more ideas to do just that!
