Live, Laugh, Love




Happy Cinco de Mayo Peeps!!!

Today's card is made for the sketch on the Stamps and Smiles Blog. They are having a week log celebration leading up to the release of five new sets. Each day Monday through Friday a new sketch is posted and if you play along you are entered in a chance to win one of the new sets. I will trying to play along each day.

My card is started with some PTI white cardstock for the base. I used The Rockabilly DS pack and each layer is matted with the white. Last Saturday I borrowed this Birthday set, On Your Birthday, from my friend Lois, so I needed to make the most of it. I really like the Live, Laugh Love sentiment and so I used it for my focal point. The balloon is from the Crazy for Cupcakes Set. I stamped the "string" that is tied onto the balloon to come across the sentiment. The balloon itself is stamped onto some of the DS paper and cut out and mounted with a dimensional.

The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory, I accented with some riding hood red ribbon and black brads. I love brads, and use them tooooo much! How about you? What is your favorite embellishment? I would be hard pressed to choose just one, I love ribbon and brads both.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
