IHP February Guest Designer: Kissed Goodnight

Hi Everyone,

I feel so fortunate to have been asked by Kate of i {heart} papers to be the Guest Designer for the month of February! Thank you sweet Kate!! I can't believe how fast this month has flown by and today on the last day of February - I am posting my last card as a guest designer - using the super beautiful stamp set from Gourmet Rubber Stamps: Kissed Goodnight: I love this sentiment:

"Even at midnight
the sun was still bright
all because you kissed me 

Isn't that sentiment so poetic and romantic - so sweet! I wanted to create a card that had both the colors of midnight and the bright sun - so I used the papers from the From The Record 2 collection from EP that had both of these colors and in the middle I added a strip of green using the beautiful 3/8" Solid Two Tone Satin Seafoam Green ribbon. I really loved creating this card - The sentiment was so beautiful that I wanted to create the symbols in this sentiment on my card as well: there is a sun at the bottom of the sentiment with a little heart cut out with a bit of bling, I punched out 3 hearts and to represent the love wrapped up in this feeling and little bling on the side representing the feeling of sparkles that you have in your heart when you are tingling in love :)

I added a little bit of twine from the ribbon going to both the sunny side and the midnight side of the card for a little added motion and then put a ribbon on top of the twine bow with some orange bling here and there on the card:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: From The Record 2 from Echo Park (6x6)
Inks: Memento Inks: Tuxedo Black
Accessories: MS corner punch, bling, circle punch, heart and star punch from MS,  3/8" Solid Two Tone Satin Seafoam Green ribbon, dimensionals and corner chomper

This was such a fun card to make because I had fun playing with the colors from the feeling that the sentiment evoked in me. Thank you so much dear Kate and the fabulous IHP Design Team for welcoming me this month - you are all so amazing and inspirational!!!
