The design of this card was inspired by Fab Friday #93 and the rest all came from paper scraps from my Dare to be Dirty challenge stamping bonanza. considering this card was all made from scratch, I think it turned out pretty decent! I wanted the watercoloring to match the vintage look of the Cosmo Cricket paper so I reached for Distress Inks I bought years ago before I started building my SU! ink collection and that had not seen the light of day in almost as long. I only have two colors - a tea dye brown and a pinkish gue and they both happened to match the paper perfectly. I watercolored on regular Very Vanilla cardstock instead of watercolor paper so it was a little harder to control the coloring, but again, not too bad. The sentiment is equally as old, as it's one of the first hostess sets SU! offered in the days when they first came to Quebec. The translations were still a little approximate back then so there's a few of those stamps that have never seen ink, but I needed a very small sentiment to fit in the corner of my image and the "totally adorable" stamp was just perfect.
The little row of heart holes was done with a die from the Everyday Jar Framelits collection, and the scribble heart came from the Sunshine Wishes Framelits set.
