Hugs & Kisses

Welcome! I am so excited about world card making day. If you spend any time on my blog, you know that I adore making cards. Hopefully I will be spending most of my day today making tons of fun cards as well.
I made this card using Dawn's color combo found here
Here is my card
Isn't this fun! It is one of my favorite I have made recently. I can't say enough for challenges. If you are just starting making cards or if you have been making them for a while, I think challenges are great fun and they really expand your abilities. It has also helped me start to define who I am and what I really love.
On this card I used quite a few sets to pull this fun look together. I really like making clean lined cards that have a lot of fun elements. I wanted to make a fun notebook like theme here. I all Papertery Ink sets to get this look accomplished. I made the label with vintage labels and journaling lines.
I used heart prints for the sentiment and the fun heart. After many tires with the heart the embossing with clear embossing powder was the best effect. The added library clip with the jute bow really put the finishing touch on this main image.
Now when I went to put the card together, I knew the spiral punch would be the right fit on the lower right side, but I wasn't sure how to finish the base card up. It finally hit me with the polka dot basics 2 set. I really like how everything turned out.
It's a good life!
