love


I am playing along with a couple of challenges using one of my favorite stamp companies stamps; concord & 9th...luv! I wanted to play along with the fusion challenge, but struggled with the purple...lol..if you know me you know I rarely use purple...eeeccckkk. I still kinda cringe as I look at my card...lol...I went ahead with it because I am embracing my fears...*grin* I watercolored the background and then added a few strips of sweet patterned paper, I then stamped the heart and added perfect pearls and some sequins. Add a little glimmer to your life....sparkle & shine, kindness!
