Whenever you're near me,
I hear a symphony... Gosh, I love The Supremes! When I saw this adorable image, First Kiss, at Summer's store, Roses on Paper, that song just jumped into my head. I used to sit and listen to Diana Ross sing and thought I'd never heard anything sound so beautiful. to me she represented glamour, fame, fortune, she had it all. Motown is still my favorite music and I could still listen to Diana belt out a song anytime.
Our sweet and extremely talented Lim, one of my fellow Design Team members at Roses on Paper gave us a theme challenge, Love and Friendship. I had to use first kiss, not because it's a no brainer, but because as sweet and innocent as they look, they have to be friends! Great challenge, Lim! Make sure to drop by my other fellow Design Team members blogs and see their gorgeous creations! I hope you all will participate in our challenge over on our Design Team blog. You can find all the details there.
I used the sketch from i(heart)2stamp for this card (love their sketches!) and stamped First Kiss with Staz-On in Jet Black and colored them with Distressed Inks. The paper is from Prima First Blush collection (how appropriate!), I used prima flowers with stickles and some dew drops. I adore the earthy tones and hope you enjoy this sweet moment in time for them. Everything highlighted below can be picked up from Summer's great store.
And don't forget to stop by the PCP group for Summer's big announcement about working with the wonderfully talented illustrator, Elisabeth Bell! I'm so over the moon on that that I still can't quite believe it! Go check it out!
I'm off today from school so I'm going to relax and create. I think I'm even going to put some Motown on. Yep, sounds like the thing to do.
