Just for you...

Happy Friday!

Today I am sharing a second card for the Passion for Papertrey Blog's latest challenge 'Nature'. I was inspired to give 'Kissing' a try! No.. not kissing my stamps LOL! but a technique I have seen a lot recently and whilst looking at Lisa Johnson's Blog I saw a card she had done using the technique HERE.

I'm LOVING my 'Turning a New Leaf' set and I tried the 'Kissing' technique with the leaf image stamped in chocolate chip! I used the Background Basics Diamonds for this technique and I think it turned out OK.

As the stamping on the card is quite busy I tried to keep the other elements of the card to a minimum! I added some butterflies and ribbon with a simple sentiment!

CS: SU! Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla & Whisper White, PTI Ripe Avocado
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip, PTI Ripe Avocado
Stamps: PTI Turning a New Leaf, background Basics Diamonds, Hero Arts All Occasion CL272
Accessories: SU! Label Punch, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, PTI Bitty Dot Basics DP and Ripe Avocado Satin Ribbon, Pearls, Foam pads

I'm kinda busy in the studio today catching up on degree work, I had planned to do some yesterday but was too tired after a busy night shift and spent the day chilling in bed! I have something to look forward to this afternoon though - a hot choc and a chat at Starbucks with my friend Kerry! Yay!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a lil blog candy giveaway my lil celebration for reaching 10,000 hits on my blog! Thanks for stopping by!
