Isn’t it fun?  I love the cute bear and the fun tags.  I wanted to use these for a layout.  It took me a long time to find a sketch I liked and I wasn’t inspired right away, but I absolutely love how it turned out.

Here are a couple close ups of the details.

I used the Vintage Carol paper pack and Complements as well as some Gold Sequins.  I sponged a lot of the paper with Desert Sand ink.  The tag images are stamped with Ruby and New England Ivy ink and I coloured the heart on the house with the Carmine Touch Twin marker.  The bow on the tags is tied with Neutral Metallic Baker’s Twine in Black.  I just tied the bow in the string and then attached it with a glue dot.

Now it’s time to hop on over to {Haley’s blog} and check out the sweet cards she’s created with this stamp set.

Happy Creating!
