My card features the Mini Monograms stamp set. This is my new favourite alphabet stamp set and I'm certain it'll take priority in your stampy stash, too! To create the custom sentiment on my card, I cut strips of ombre pink paper from Echo Park's Head Over Heels 6x6 paper pad and simply stamped the letters one by one. They are so easy to line up! After trimming the sentiment strips. I die cut two felt clouds using the Cosmos Icons dies and two harlequin patterned clouds using the Clouds dies. The top heart is from the Wedding Shower dies and the other two hearts are from the Hearts dies.



Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are one of the lucky winners!
