When I saw the Clean & Simple sketch (#146), I was inspired to pull out the Things I Love set and use the little images in lieu of the flowers on the sketch. The color combo was inspired by the ColourQ challenge (#90). It's definitely different, which is why I wanted to give it a try.
The "Things I Love" sentiment and words on the tags were all embossed with white powder to make it stand out on the colored background. I had planned on using the heart stamp from the set to add a heart at the right of the sentiment, but it was a little too big and didn't work, so I remembered there's a cute little heart on the owl punch, which is what I used to punch a heart out of Poppy Parade textured cardstock.
I embossed the background cardstock with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder and I added two rows of brads on each side of the patterned papers. There's something like 20 brads on there, but I decided to go for it since the Brilliant Blue brads are now retired anyway and not hoarding my stash has been my motto for a few years now. The designer papers are from the In Colors hostess pack (Poppy Parade) and the retired Pink Flamingo pack (Tempting Turquoise).
I also decorated the inside of the card with the rest of the sentencde ("... but most of all, you!"). To do so, I used a tag from the Lots of Tags die set and the Wide Oval punch to add a border.
Tip: If you would like to use this colour combo but do not have any Brilliant Blue cardstock (a retired colour), I would suggest using Pacific Point cardstock instead, which works just as nicely.
