Heart Flutter

Today I have a card that I put together for two different challenges.  One is The Greeting Farm's Splitcoast Stampers Sketch challenge, and the other is Anyone for Anya's Stitches challenge.

This was stamped with TGF's 

This was unusual for me, no colored image.  I have had this set for a while now, and decided to put it to use.  I used my distress ink pads for the couple and the cloud.  I also wet embossed the sentiments with a pretty clear iridescent powder. (they really sparkle in person!)  The multi-colored patterned paper is from Echo Park's Happy Days pad, and the black/white polka dot is an old sheet from my stash.  I tied on a My Mind's Eye button with baker's twine from Jillibean.  I like it, it looks very "modern".  

Hope everyone is having a great summer!  As you can tell, Maddie and I were playing with the camera yesterday.  It's been a while since I have sat down and played with my pics in Picasa, and boy have they added some fun tools!!

  9. Hi Rachel. This is super cute! I love all the color with the black. Some of my favorite things to put together. You just can't go wrong with some black and white dots and color. Looks like you and Maddie had a great time as well. Don't you just love having fun with your kids. I love to see and hear my M&Ms' personalities when they get going. lol.. Hope you have a great weekend. Is your Maddie nervious for next year? Mine our a little worried as we only have one High School here and it is packed. I am sure that they will find their way just like when they started junior high. Hugs, Lisa
