Paper Sweeties August 2017-Release Party!

*It's a long post today!  Hope you stay 'til
the end!  Thanks so much for dropping by!*

Hi, there!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties Release Party!  Today is the day that you can purchase the wonderful new stamp/die sets that are released this month!  A scalloped frame, sweet sentiments, flowers and a fun bicycle set!  Please scroll down to see my second post for Dies R Us.  And, here is my card...

I used the newly released bicycle again for my card, but wanted some depth and interest by adding the smaller bicycle in the background.  I added the smiley faces for fun.  For some reason, I just love smiley faces.  They just look at you and make you want to smile, too!

I started with a white card base and water colored the background using Distress Oxide inks of Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, and Twisted Citron.  I used the new sets that were released this month, which is A friend is(frame and flowers) and Hugs and Kisses(large bicycle and sentiment).  The coordinating dies are Sweet Cuts-A friend is and Sweet Cuts-Hugs and Kisses.  The previously released sets that I used are planner stamps...Planner Series: Happy Icons(smileys) and Planner Series: Vacation(small bicycles).  Ribbon(Green Apple) to finish the card.
