Sending My Love--FMS 189 and Just Us Girls #295

June 4, 2015

Today is special because it is my birthday!  I am so excited because I am going to lunch with special friends and then I am going to see my GRANDS for dinner.  Such a great way to celebrate!  Time is the best gift of all!

Today my card is for Freshly Made Sketches and Just Us Girls Challenge.  I love this sketch and it will be one I use again!  I had so many ideas for what I wanted to create.  I adore paper piecing, so this was the perfect pair for me. 

I used the new Simon Says Stamp-You Have My Heart stamp and die set to create my card.  I just love this precious little girl!  I also participated in the Day 3 challenge to color every day for 30 days!  I didn't do as much coloring today because I paper pieced her dress and the balloons, but her face and hair were colored with Copics.   This card was so simple to put together.  I used Snap-Color Vibe Paper Kit for the pink polka dots.  A circle and rectangle cut with my stitched dies and a little black rectangle for the sentiment.  It was stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I added a few Marshmallow sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to complete this card. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today!  Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!

Have a wonderful day!
