Head Over Heels

I've been waiting for this Basic Grey patterned paper to be available as soon as I first saw photos of it from Winter CHA. I absolutely love the color purple, but I don't have much of it in my stash. I used Mercy's sketch, SASSC11, for my card today. I wanted to add a contrasting color to the purple, but I also wanted to tone it down, so I chose Kraft.

I stamped and colored headoverheels Huggabugg and it's hard to tell from the photo, but I added Star Dust stickles to her wings. I cut out my image as a circle, then I mounted it on cardstock cut out using the Blossom Nestabilities die. The rectangular Kraft panel was embossed with distressed stripes before topped with twill ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
