hello! (another card for kazan's sketch #31)

i really liked Kazan's sketch over at 2sketches4you. i thought that i would have a hard time with the 4 elements, but i ended up having plenty of ideas, and this is actually my 2nd card :D
i recently got this sweet K&Co paper, the Carolyn Gavin collection (ultra funky, UBER me!), as well as these fun bauble bubbly gem things :D i used the heart bauble on one of the punched circles to add some interest/ dimension. the sentiment is embossed using VersaMark and a Heidi Swapp stamp set.

i decided to let the sentiment hang from a small safety pin and twine instead of fastening it to the card with dimensionals... i think it looks sweet :D

this cards was super simple to make--just punch out 1", 1 1/4", and 1 1/2" circles (the biggest one with a scallop punch) in alternating papers (these were double sided, so just flip 'em over) and adhere along with some side strips to the left (i only used one mat stack paper for the whole thing) and satin ribbon. i kept the circle with the bauble adhered directly to the card so it would be somewhat different than the rest.

anyway, thanks for looking :D i'm off to pack up for a week-long VBA outreach... i'm going to schedule some posts for when i'm gone, so don't forget to check back! have a lovely friday and fabulous weekend, XOXO.
