    Pansies Little Extra Happiness with Pansy Petals DSP

    Pansies Little Extra Happiness I love Pansies, Little Extra Happiness and so much more about this card. Let’s start with the Pansy Petals DSP (patterned paper – there is a suite too). Both of these patterns come from that pack. The Bumblebee pattern is a soft or subtle pattern. With the flower and leaf pattern being a bit bigger. AGAIN mixing my DSP’s to show off how easy and pretty they can be together. However, this layout works with any coordinating DSP’s. I used this layout for the Make ‘n Take card at the BOGO sale last month. This was the sample idea. The other two used the Beauty of…
