Addicted to Stamps Challenge #130




Hi everyone,
For this week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps, we have a photo inspiration for you...It's filled with hugs and kisses, and just in time for Valentine's Day! Here is my card:




After applying ink in rainbow order, I used my PTI dies from Wonderful Words: Love set, and stacked each word for added dimension. I love the stitched rectangles for this type of card and how the black border helps the white space and colors to pop. 

I hope you'll take the time to stop over on the ATSM Blog to see what my team mates have created and play along in this week's challenge. Our sponsor is Bugaboo Digi Stamps, and the winner of this challenge will receive 7 digital images!

Have a great day,
