Wrapped in Love

This card is for this week's Just Us Girls (JUGS) Challenge #10, which is a sketch. I'm using a My Favorite Things set, released last month, called Wrapped In Love.

The sentiment--and focal image--was stamped on Whisper White with Ruby Red ink and the flourishes are from another set, called Boho Blossoms. Then I cut/embossed the sentiment with a Nestabilities Label Four die, matting it with Ruby Red and Certainly Celery. The little packages were stamped on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers, then popped up on 3M foam squares after I tied some Blue Bayou double striped ribbon on. Last, I added some Hero Arts flat back pearls on the card base and a couple within the flourishes on the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today!
