Jane's Doodles {Hope Set}

I made a set of encouragement and hope cards for HYCCT1126: Send a Little Sunshine. These use three Jane's Doodles stamp sets: Little Miss Mia, Big Sentiments and Pretty Peonies. I left the image plain except for a little rhinestone to keep the focus on the beautiful Echo Park papers.

These cards are so easy to make with sweet Little Miss Mia and the variety of large sentiments offered in Big Sentiments. The single sentiment from Pretty Peonies works wonderfully with the floral paper. Leaving the images uncoloured on white allows them to complement the papers rather than compete for attention. A little rhinestone in the centre of the flower finishes them nicely.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I have a lot to catch up on. :)

What gorgeous papers to showcase! Little Miss Mia looks perfect on them, and I especially love the way the sentiment matches the paper on the first one .
