hello, beautiful

OK, so no gorgeous guy has ever said (nor will ever say) that to me, but I bet if I sent this card to a friend it would make her feel pretty darn good.

I just love how it all came together.


I wanted to play along at the current challenge saying hello to the new DT over at Little Tangles. And in Mayuri's Crafty class I had just learned about smoooshing with Dylusions (I absolutely love all Dyan's yummy colors. Here I used Postbox, Sunshine and Bubblegum) on an acrylic block. So...

I smooshed a slew of backgrounds. Yes, it's addicting. But less fattening than chocolate. Chose this one and my SSS Summer Garden blooms to pair up. Stamped the pattern as symmetrical as I could and then added the heat embossed sentiment.

The best part? Well, besides those unsmooshed white edges that I now find totally energizing for the design, it's basically one layer!

I'm playing here:
Little Tangles - Hello

Happy Little Stampers - CASE the Designer
SSS Monday - Best Friends
Penny Black and More - One for the Girls

Happy Friday to all!

Gorgeous colours for your beautiful blooms. I'm loving the white edge too ... adds so much visual depth. Definitely doesn't look like one layers. Great job Maria! xx
