I am a compulsive purchaser of Stampin' Up! products, and had an unopened packet of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper crying out to be used. I decided to make a bright, cheery card that I think would really suit a teenage girl. As it turned out, it did get the tick of approval from my 18-yr-old son and his sweet girlfriend who will be 18 in a few months.
One of my favourite features of this card is the heart I stamped, in Strawberry Slush ink, behind the sentiment. Simple, but it makes me happy! There's a good demonstration, on my card, of how well SU! co-ordinates its products. I stamped the heart (from Perfect Pennants) two more times in Strawberry Slush ink, on Whisper White card. I used the little heart die from the Circles Card thinlits set to cut out the hearts. They were then layered onto Silver Glimmer hearts cut using one of the heart shaped dies from the Hearts A Flutter framelits collection. Great match, don't you think?
The three black embellishments in the top left of the card are Basic Large Rhinestones, coloured with a black Sharpie pen.

It took almost all my strength to refrain from sponging the edges of my paper and cardstock on this card! Right outside my comfort zone, but I wanted a clean, crisp look. I love how it turned out.
