You're Fab

Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today. It was so much fun to create. I don't often throw things together like this and keep going. It was hard to stop! I used a big sentiment and tag from Qwick Qwips, with a smaller partial sentiment from Alfresco and hexagons from Geo-Graphic. I layered the tag on a hexagon, a couple of circles and some strips of paper, all from Echo Park's A Boy's Life collection. I was going to stamps some stars and add some gemstones but figured I should just stop since it was already so colourful with burlap and staple embellishments!
