This stamp set was the first item from this brand new Idea Book that I got to play with well before I had new papers in my hands.  So, I challenged myself to think outside my usual box.  In doing that, I chose to mix and match a few different paper packets to come up with my card.  The Chantilly and Surf's Up packets are still available in the new book.  I loved how they worked together on my card!

Now you can hop on over to Joy's blog to see her creation for this hop. Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to see lots of fun artwork for your viewing pleasure.
