You and Me

Hi Everyone:
I had a wonderful Sunday creating. Of course I watched the superbowl and let me say Kelly did an amazing job on the National Athem. I am such a traditional person when it comes to that and I don't want anyone adding their spin on it! Just sayin'. So, I've been trying to get out of the norm and use some different colors and I'm likin' it! I made this cute V-day card. The picture is from a free site but I can't find her now. I think her site is gone. I've been trying to use my stash also and it's amazing what I'm finding. I collect too much.

My supplies:
Various Cardstocks (old stuff-no name)
Versa Color Bamboo and Green Tea
Art-C Green Bead Mix
Bo Bunny Chipboard letters (Etc.. line)
Cuttlebug and Embossing folders
Antique Lace
Helmar's Glue
I ran some cardstock through my Cuttlebug and used the Bamboo ink to bring out the embossing. I used both inks to edge all the cardstock, picture and letters. It makes all the pieces stand out when put together. I strung the beads on wire and threaded them through the picture. I also ran the ink lightly in the lace to add a little color. I love all these beachy colors even though I'm a mountain girl!
BTW, I'm sharing with Sugar Creek Hollow  in their latest Beach Vacation challenge. Join me if you can!
Enjoy Your Day My Friends. - Kim
