Sending Hugs ~ PTI MIM #196

My second post for the day is this card I made for the PTI MIM challenge on making colorful card corners with Danielle Flanders. You can find her video HERE.

I used the new PTI set "Big Hugs" and "The Sweet Life" to create this pretty, sparkly card. The rose image is stamped using Sweet Blush, Autumn Rose and Scarlet Jewel and the leaves in Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avacado. The background image is from last years SAF, Ancient Rome set, stamped in Soft Stone. I don't know if you can see it or not, but I never realized that little flourishy image included in the Sweet Life set. I stamped that also using Soft Stone in the corners of my flower arrangement. You can see it best if you enbiggen the top picture. I love it when I discover new things!

I just recently purchased a pad of American Crafts sparkly paper and I'm just loving it! I used the Big Hugs die to cut the sentiment out of the ruby red color paper.

Sorry for the blurry picture, but here's the inside. Clean and simple.
I'm also entering this into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
