Hey there!

Just popping in to share a quick card with you...

I'm playing along with Avery Elle's word

I used the stamp set Celebrate from Avery Elle. I hope OMG qualifies as one word! It's actually three in one.

I also followed the color palette from Color Throwdown...

I love the soft colors and wanted to break out some dies I have been neglecting... the stars and frame are from Lil' Inker Designs. All cardstock is from Papertrey Ink, except the gray is from Bazzill. I used black ink from Hero Arts and sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
Hope you are enjoying the weekend!

July 16: Paper Sweeties July Release Rewind!

Hello again!

Alas, the last day of the Paper Sweeties July Release! I hope you have enjoyed yourself so far!!! Today I am showing you what I created using the newest Sweet Cuts Dies that coordinate with Home Tweet Home stamp set.

 I am so happy Debbie has created the die fence. So much easier than hand cutting, but I chose not to stamp it. I just wanted a white picket fence.
I fell in love with the newest sketch from Retro girly and frilly!

I used this sweetest 6x6 paper pad by Fancy Pants, Beloved...

The adorable flowers, bird and dragonfly are also part of the die set.  I used black ink, soft blosson and wet cement inks from Hero Arts and lake house and old gold inks from WPlus9.  The enamel dots are from My Mind's Eye. All cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.

I am also playing along with Curtain Call...they are celebrating their 1 year anniversary!!!! Congratulations!
I colored the bird and dragonfly with some Copic Markers. The twine is from Michaels.

Come join us for the last day of the blog hop to see the amazing creations from the Design Team!!!
