Hello there!
Today's card was made for two of my favorite challenges, Freshly Made Sketches 181 and Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 304

I love this sketch! 

And look at these beautiful colors!

Here is what I got.
I started out with a totally different design, but I just couldn't get happy with it, so I did what I normally do. I looked through my DSPs and dies. That always gives me fresh ideas!

I didn't have any DSP in Gumball Green except the Christmas pack, so I brushed some big, bold stripes on the watercolor paper.  Then I wanted to use the Designer Vellum, can you believe this was my first time using this pretty paper!?

My eyes caught the Essentials by Ellen Hutson You Rock Die set first. Then the Paper Smooches Glasses Die, and I wanted a heart. This one is from the Becky Higgins Cut Your Own PL Card Die set.  I thought it was the right size.

That cute little loop border was the first thing I picked out for this card. I believe it's from Your Next Stamp? It was one of the die cuts that Nina sent me, and I was waiting for the right opportunity to use one. I think it adds such fun! I just ordered a very similar (I actually think it's exactly the same) loop border die from My Favorite Things along with other goodies! Oh the anticipation of waiting...

My notes...

Paper: Very Vanilla, Melon Mambo, Gumball Green, Gold Fancy Designer Vellum Foil, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Gumball Green, Water
Tool: On Film Framelits Die, Becky Higgins Cut Your Own PL Card Die Set, Paper Smooches Glasses Die Set, Essentials by Ellen Hutson You Rock Die Set, Your Next Stamp Awesome Border Die Set One, Paint Brush
