Hugs & Smiles

This card is a totally different style for me.  In fact, I'm not really quite sure how it turned out to look like this! LOL!!  I based the sketch off of the Mojo Monday #155 sketch.

Here is the sketch I was working from:

To create the bottom portion, I stamped an image from Guide Lines 2 in Spring Rain ink on Lemon Tart cardstock.  Then, I stamped the little circle leaf bracket-like images in Spring Moss.  Then, I stamped the same image I stamped in Spring Rain earlier, with VersaMark ink in the blank spaces and took yellow Pebbles Shimmer chalk and rubbed it over the image.  Then, I took some purple chalk and rubbed it over the center of the images.  It makes kind of a vintagey looking paper.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a great day!!
