Paper Smooches - last week of guest designing

Back again today with my last (sniff sniff) card for the guest design spot with Paper Smooches.  I have had a blast working with Kim's adorable and innovative designs.  I hope it's not the last time we work together.

This card was inspired by two things - first was the wonderful Wavy Pattern Die which was a terrific way to show off the second inspiring thing - the background paper behind the die.  I created that with Distress Oxide inks and used it to pick my color pallet.  Matting layers in black help make the wavy border just pop so well.  I used the stamp from the Wavy Wishes for the sentiment and then used the Wavy Wishes Icon Die set to cut it out.  I popped it up a little then added the ribbon and bow to bring it all together.


I guess that's it for now - I'll still be working with tons of Paper Smooches stuff - so stay tuned for more to come!
