SNS Blog Hop!

If you started at the beginning of today's Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog Hop, I am your last stop for today (if not, start here!)...that seems like such a big responsibility! My design team-mates are quite a hard act to follow! I am always amazed at their creations and feel so privileged to be part of this close-knit team.

My card for today is a combination challenge card for Korin's sketch and Monday's DT challenge. I used some of my favorite designer paper as of late, Basic Grey's Urban Prairie. I love these 6 x 6 pads for card-making because their prints are scaled down for a card's smaller size. The image I chose is from the Sweet 'n Sassy set Warm Up. It was stamped in black and then colored with prismas and baby oil. The pretty pink heart is from K & Company's multi-colored pack of adhesive gems.

I love the pop that the black matting gives the bright colors of this paper...the bright pink card stock was a bit overwhelming for the print, so I toned it down just a bit with a light sponging of white craft ink. A pretty stick pin, matching brads, some fibers from my out-of-control ribbon bin, and a layered sentiment were the only embellishments that it needed...I kept trying to add more but finally decided that it was best with less. Because of the busy-ness of the print the layout needed more *white* space. This card will be perfect as an invitation to some girlfriend time at Starbuck's! I'm looking forward to it already!

I hope you've enjoyed today's hop, and that you'll return tomorrow and Saturday to see the rest of our design teams' creations!
