Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog Guest Designer Week 2!!!

Hello friends!

I'm here today to share with you my second creation for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog!! This week we are showcasing Prima, with a theme of Love is in the Air!! (yay!!)

Our gorgeous sponsors are the ever-fabulous


So here is my card:

I love you so much


Starting with a Hero Arts piece of layering paper that I cut to size and scored, I then inked up my Hero Arts Houndstooth CLing stamp with Latte chalk ink and stamped the cardfront.

Next I added a doily, the gorgeous Prima Flower (which is no longer available, but I've linked to a similar one below that would be just perfect). Next I took some paper from the my Minds Eye Lost & Found Sunshine collection, and diecut the two hears using a Tim Holtz die. I inked around the edges of the hearts with some distress ink, before adhering them to the doily, just nestled in behind each other.
For the sentiment, I wanted something custom, so I printed it out on my PC and then cut it into the flag shape.

Dont forget to play along with us this week for the chance to win!!! (How amazingly generous are they?!)




Thanks so much for popping by!

*hugs*
