You & Me

Hello everyone!
For this week’s chllenge at The Cutting Edge, Melania Deasy created a really pretty inspiration card, and I decided to play along...Here is Melania's card for the challenge:



And, here is my card:



It’s all about using die cuts for this challenge, so I decided to use my Paper Smooches Ampersand die, and a few heart dies from Lil’ Inkers and Mama Elephant. I love using pastel colors on my cards, but it looks a little washed out on my screen. Anyway, I added glossy accents to a few hearts, some sparkly sequins, and I CASED Amy Kolling’s idea to add dots with a Copic Marker...and that was it!

I would also like to enter this card in this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is also for the theme 'Anything Goes'.


Thanks so much for stopping by ~
Barb

What a sweet card Barb! I love pastels too! The ampersand is so perfect with the cute scattering of hearts! I'll have to remember the tip of using Copics to add some tiny dots! I just love that! ((Hugs))
