So, Have I Ever Mentioned My Fondness for the Color Red?

'Cause I kinda super really love it. For reals. Lots. Just say'n.

SOOOOOO....that being said, this card was kinda super really tons of fun to make!

It started with this amazing sketch by the fabulous Teri Anderson!

 I love this sketch.  It is so well balanced and I had so many ideas when I saw it!  FUN STUFF!!!

I chose to use the Dandelion Dreams set from Skipping Stones Design.  This is a great set because it is super versatile!  I love it!  I combined it with Making Memories papers and Prima Flowers.  To create the lines on the top and left side of the card I embossed them and then sanded them for a really neat effect.

I used the seriously amazing Tombow Glue Pen to add the glitter around the circle and around the stamped sentiment label.  It gives you an amazing fine line!  I LOVE IT!

AND...in other Skipping Stones Design news.....  I will be introducing this months new releases later on and one of them just might cause an 'Eclipse.'  Just say'n.  ;-)  So keep your eyes open for THAT fun!!!!
