Kindness Matters for the PPA

Happy Spring again! I love these colors--they match my blooming Iris'! I got SO jazzed when I tried out the Designer Build-A-Brad! Just by putting a piece of Wisteria Wonder card stock under the clear "blob" I added a beautiful, matching designer touch to this week's Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge. How will YOU interpret the sketch? You can see that I flipped the sketch on it's side for my card.

This will be a card that is hard to give away. I don't know what it is about this brad, but it mesmerizes me and I love to look at it. It's like a lustrous jewel! I added some teeny Basic Pearls around the brad and they just look so sweet.

Peeking out from under my Top Note Die piece are some banner shapes I cut from Polka Dot Parade Designer Paper and Whisper White card stock, the latter having gone through my Big Shot with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder. So simple, but they really add to my card quickly. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today and that you will leave a comment below. Thanks everyone for your kind comments, I really do smile when I read them.
