Big Hugs

March 26, 2012

Happy Monday, everyone!  Considering the afternoon is almost over here, I certainly hope that you had a great day!  I just wanted to pop in really quick, and share a card using the March Key Ingredients kit.  The kit features Echo Park's "This & That" Graceful 6x6 paper pad and matching brads...along with the usual matching cardstock, and ribbon.  This collection is full of gorgeous colors and has a vintage feel, but still plenty of options to keep it clean and simple!

My favorite sheet of paper in this collection is called "Yardsticks".  It is full of multi-color rulers and measuring tapes....and I just love it!  You will see that I used it at the top of my card, and diecut the larger butterfly from it.  Here is what I created!
    "Big Hugs" supplies: 
Stamps: Taylored Expressions (Wreath of Love set) 
Ink: Tsukineko (versafine: onyx black)
 Felt: Papertrey Ink
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Pins: craft supply
Butterfly Die: My Favorite Things
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Please see the March Key Ingredients Inspiration Sheet for the steps to create this card!

-CES Challenge #78- photo inspiration

That is all I have for now!  Please stop back by tonight when I share my next card for Lawn Fawn inspiration week!! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
