I heart you


Happy Friday Everyone!
I was able to spend a little time creating yesterday and came up with this cute card. I just got the new Maybelle Ro "Dear Friend" stamp set featured in Serendipity and couldn't wait to play with the adorable images. For this card I used a white card base. I've been drawn lately to the vibrant colors of Miss Moxie paper so I used the green from that collection for the background on my base. I also used the red pattern paper to paper piece the heart ballons on the image. I colored this darling sweetie with prisma colored pencils blended with goo gone( yes I know.. there she goes again with the goo gone- I just love the affect!) I did a little paper piercing around the colored image and used my edge distresser to rough up the edges. I placed my colored image on two scallopped squares that I punched out and stack to make a rectangle. I punched holes in the scallops for more punch. I stamped my sentiment on a small oval and added ribbons and buttons. For the final touch I cut two small ovals in half, punched a hole in the end and attached them to the front. I thought the card needed a little more red. What do you think?

You had asked about directions for the stationary box I made for Mischelle's blog. Here are the ones I used. http://jackietopa.typepad.com/Stationary.pdf
I only changed it a very little bit. I took the flaps that wrap around the back off.
