Stamping With Friends - Kissing Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop as we share what projects we are currently working on to inspire you! You will be visiting with our Design Team Members as they share their wonderful projects and ideas to help spark your creativity.  This time our theme is "Kissing Technique".  It's been a long time since I've done this technique.  It was fun to play with it again. I love how my card turned out!  What do you think?

Isn't this a cool technique!

I created this card during a recent Sketch Challenge using products from the Fancy Flora Suite as well as the Ranunculus Romance Stamp Set.  You can join me every Tuesday night at 6:30pm Pacific for my Sketch and play along!

Here's the sketch I used.

Now, here's my card.  Isn't it pretty!
