Sending Bunches Of Love {SSS161}

Hi there!  Did you notice a little change at my blog?  Isn't my new blog design BEAUTIFUL?  Oh My Word....I just love it!  Well, the wildly talented stamper and Dirty Dozen Alum, Kim Teasdale has started a new online business called Dilly Dally Alley Designs and she redesigned my entire blog!  If you're interested in a new blog design PLEASE go to Kim!  I can't say enough good things about her!

In honor of my new blog design, I made a card with the papers that inspired the look of my new blog, Summer Fresh by Simple Stories.  L.O.V.E. this paper.  

I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #161.  Karen always has such terrific sketches and this one is no exception!  I used Bunch of Hearts Flopsey for my card.  He was colored with Copics and his hearts were paper pieced.  The large heart in the center was stamped a second time and popped up for some dimension on a piece of patterned paper cut using the Rectangle STAX set 1. I cut a heart from burlap using the Hearts a Plenty Die-namics.  The little flower was made with the Flower and Leaf Trio Die-namics.  The Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics were used for the flags and the sentiment was cut out using the Mini Tab Foursome Die-namics.  Some machine stitching and an adhesive pearl on the flower finishes the front.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a great weekend!
