For You

Hey Everyone!!

Today i have a card to share for Penny Black's Sending Hugs Challenge. The challenge is to create a project for anyone with a friend or love theme.

With my card i didn;t make it overly love but i went with pink colors and an image that i thought would be great for a little girl. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with distress markers.

 Next i used a Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil and some glitter glue. I used a paint brush to dab on the glitter glue. To me it looks like bubbles! You can see what i mean in the close up below.

I matted the panel on dark pink cardstock, then wrapped some hand dyed seam binding around it and tied it in a small bow. I also die cut a tiny tag and small heart. I stamped the sentiment for you and then added the tiny heart. I added the tag to the bow and adhered the panel to my Kraft card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
